Consider using /additional/ versioned URIs, e.g.

  <http://purl.org/NET/biol/20080510/ns#>
  <http://purl.org/NET/biol/20080921/ns#>

from which people can access the previous versions of your ontology. The
version-free URI, which you have chosen now, will always refer to the latest
of these versioned ontologies.
 
The URI of the ontology, which is used within the ontology header, will
always be the version-free one. But you may, as a hint to people, add an
'owl:versionInfo' annotation property to the ontology header, which points
to the respective versioned URI:  

  <owl:Ontology rdf:about="http://purl.org/NET/biol/ns">
    <owl:versionInfo rdf:resource="http://purl.org/NET/biol/20080510/ns" />
  </owl:Ontology> 

Cheers,
Michael
