What does version number x in 0.0.0-x mean?

for example, today unstable branch updated kwin-5.25.0-2, but KDE only release 5.25.0 and 5.25.1 will be released until 2022-06-21 (Schedules/Plasma 5 - KDE Community Wiki). so what is the difference between 5.25.0-1 and 5.25.0-2

It’s release number: pkgrel

no I mean what will change technically between different pkgrels?

Sometimes it is just rebuild against new version of dependience libs, sometimes backend fix patch before official release. Depends.
Changelog is here:

Arch Linux devs using Github now (in past own svn)

The first three numbers are given by the actual developer of the program. In Arch/Manjaro, the number is given by the maintainer of the package.
