I’m not sure why you want to know, but I’ll tell you as best I can recall.  Some of the answers are in the archives, but I don’t have time to look them up for you at the moment.

Field 2 is the main.cvd version number
Field 3 is the daily.cvd version number
Field 4 is the time of last update? (guess)
Field 5 is a flag indicating that a warning should be issued if the engine is out-of-date
Field 6 is the engine functional level required to read the most advanced database (currently daily & bytecode)
Field 7 ?
Field 8 is the bytecode.cvd version number
