If you add an AssemblyInfo class to your project and ammend the AssemblyVersion attribute to end with an asterisk, for example:

[assembly: AssemblyVersion("2.10.3.*")]

Visual studio will increment the final number for you according to these rules (http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/system.reflection.assemblyversionattribute.aspx)
