Thank you Wes, keeping the same version sounds good to me.

    hi Hatem,
    Until the Parquet community begins to make C++ releases out of the new
    monorepo structure, I think we should continue to use the same SO
    version for all libraries produced by the build. Otherwise the ABI
    version from a coming from an Arrow release artifact
    could cause conflict with a different having the same
    ABI version but originating from a different released version.
    If this is not what other people want, that is OK, but I don't think
    we should be building with a snapshot Parquet version
    from an Arrow release artifact. So we can make the SO version
    distinct, so long as there is not the possibility of conflict if and
    when the Parquet community makes a C++ release.

you use -DARROW_PARQUET=ON.  My observation is that back when parquet-cpp was a separate project
the shared libs were versioned using the parquet-cpp version number (e.g 1.4.0).  Since moving
to a single repo, the parquet shared libraries are now versioned with the arrow version number
(e.g. 0.12.0)
