I have published a plugin, first time, on wordpress.org. The problem I have is that it doesn't show the stats of active version and only option for download is a Development Version.

My svn structure is,

/assets/ (plugin image assets)
/tags/2.3.0/(plugin files)
/trunk/(plugin files)

Note: For Development purposes and version control, the initial version of the plugin is 2.3.0 and its the same as in the trunk folder.

The readme file of the plugin:

===  XXXXX ===
Donate link: 
Requires at least: 3.0.1
Tested up to: 4.7.3
Stable tag: 2.3.0
License: GPLv2

I have removed the name of the plugin as well as the redundant parts. This readme.txt is validated from the WordPress readme validatior.

For the current version, make sure you include the Version attribute in your plugin header file. Like this:

Plugin Name: WordPress.org Plugin
Plugin URI:  https://developer.wordpress.org/plugins/the-basics/
Description: Basic WordPress Plugin Header Comment
Version:     2.3.0
Author:      WordPress.org
Author URI:  https://developer.wordpress.org/
License:     GPL2
License URI: https://www.gnu.org/licenses/gpl-2.0.html
Text Domain: wporg
Domain Path: /languages

For more detail check the WordPress Header Requirements documentation.
