When using /echo without a switch or anything before $version it prints everything after in orange. It is printing in orange because "7" is the first digit in 7.57 and "CTRL+K 7" is orange.

Code
//echo $version $beta


6.35 prints: 6.35
7.57.2183 prints: 7.57 2183
7.57.2269 prints: 2269 (in orange text)

Code
; This test works in 7.57.2183 and older. Newer versions give this issue:
alias test1 {
  ; * /echo: insufficient parameters (line 4, remote.ini)
  echo $version
}
alias test2 {
  ; "..." printed in orange
  echo $version ...
}
alias test3 {
  ; a 7.58
  echo a $version
}

alias test4 {
  echo 4. this prints black 
  echo 4.8 this prints red in 7.57.2269 and newer
  echo 4.8. this prints black
}

Thanks for your bug report. The reason for this is that some commands and identifiers were updated in v7.58 to correctly handle both integers and floats in their parameters. Previously, some features, like /echo, were inconsistent and thought a floating point number was plain text, so were not evaluating it correctly. I can change this back for /echo for backward compatibility but, in general, most features have been standardized to handle numbers whether integer or float.
