JVN does not indicate CVE versions, since it is updated using the most current CVE information.

Map Currency Update Approach <CR_5.2>

Indicate how often you plan on updating the mappings to reflect new CVE versions and describe your approach to keeping reasonably current with CVE versions when mapping them to your repository (required):

Mappings will be updated as soon as the update information is made available from the CVE/NVD website.

Map Currency Update Time <CR_5.3>

Describe how and where you explain to your customers the timeframe they should expect an update of your capability's mappings to reflect newly available CVE content (required):

We update the website and JVNDBRSS on a daily basis on business days (according to the Japanese calendar).

JVNDBRSS is a data feed to provide the vulnerability information newly added/updated and a yearly collection of those in the JVNRSS format ( http://jvndb.jvn.jp/schema/jvnrss_2.0.xsd ).

Using an RSS reader, people can expect and get the latest contents of the database easily, including the mapping updates that will be made, as soon as possible.
