Hello,

the number after the . is the version of the transcript.

See here.

When talking/writing about transcript one should always add the information about the version and the reference genome.

In some cases it might also point to isoforms of a specific gene. But that's not gonna be the case here I think

EDIT: after consulting people from Ensembl it turns out my comment above is not holding true for the emsembl IDs, so can safely be ignored in this specific case!
