Severity: Important
Broken in: v2.12.2
Fixed in: v3.0.0



Subject: decreasing versions
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 399b
Versions with 2 dots are converted to real numbers. 0.1.1 means 0.001001. So 0.1 > 0.1.1. Versions with one dot are real numbers. So 0.9 > 0.10. Best is to delete distributions that have bigger versions that latest (that will help new installations). And upload new distribution with correct version (that will help users that have older version installed). -- Alexandr Ciornii, http://chorny.net

I'm not sure I understand the problem. I had v12.2 on CPAN (that's the equivalent of v12.2.0) and now I've uploaded v12.2.1 and v12.2.2. So the version numbers aren't decreasing - they're increasing. If I'm misunderstanding something, then please explain further. Dave...

Previous version was without 'v' and it is important, because 12.2 is equivalent of v12.200.0 Show quoted text

Thanks for the explanation. To be honest, that looks to me like a bug in version.pm. But it looks like I need to upload this as v3.0.0 in order to work around it. Cheers, Dave...
Version 3.0.0 is now available on CPAN.
