Revision numbers are global, and apply to the entire repository-- ie
if one makes a revision to trunk, the *global* revision number is
incremented.  That's why it's key to specify branch/trunk.  If
you/someone were running -fixes at r17900 and another at r19000,
there's a real possibility that only a few of those intervening
revisions actually made changes to the branch you were running.

To answer your more specific question, .21 was originally released at
revision 16468.  Anything added after that is a fix or a backport.
Without being more specific about what code changes you are speaking
of, the only safe assumption is that you have all the uPnP
functionality as of 16468, and are probably missing most new
functionality added thereafter.
