And which is the current version?

If you mean the numbered iterations, I'll give it a try, but my knowledge ends around Flashpoint.

There was never really an official Brainiac 2 or 3 but the original's son and grandson Vril Dox II and Lyrl Dox were teased as such. They are ancestors of Querl Dox, Brainiac 5 of the Legion of Super-Heroes. His mother was stated at least once to be Brainiac 4 but I don't think she's ever been seen really.

At some point the original Brainiac got a makeover and called himself Brainiac 2.0, but shouldn't he really have been 1.1?

Then of course at the height of Y2K we got Brainiac 13, a sentient computer program from the distant future who downloaded himself back through time and upgraded Superman's Metropolis into Fritz Lang's Metropolis with skywalks and hover cars as part of a nefarious plan to ... do something. I think his consciousness ended up in Lex's daughter Lena at some point? Or was that 2.0?

The Cir-El Supergirl storyline was wrapped by the reveal that she was created by Brainiac 12, another future AI, so she deleted herself from time and space to prevent his creation. This somehow gave Superman another soft reboot to connect Birthright to the main continuity.

And then of course there was Indigo, a blue-skinned humanoid robot girl who came from the future to kill Donna Troy in the Titans/Young Justice Graduation Day story. She becomes a friend to the Titans until it's revealed that she's actually Brainiac 8 and a villain. This version showed up on the current Supergirl tv show.

That's all I know.
