Subject: Deprecation notes leave version confusion around Net::SMTP

The deprecation notes state that native SSL/STARTLS support have been available since Net::SMTP 1.28, however, Net::SMTP never existed with a version lower than 2.0

This is of course due to the discrepancy between the version stated on the libnet distribution and on Net::SMTP itself.

Perhaps its intended that it means libnet-1.28 , which was released around the date stated in the deprecation notice.

But this would mean the appropriate notice would be:


"Since Net::SMTP 2.35 ( libnet 1.28 @ 2014-10-08 )"


Or similar.

The difference is demonstrable here:


 cpanm --look --dev 'Net::SMTP@1.28'
! Finding Net::SMTP (== 1.28) on cpanmetadb failed.
Found Net::SMTP 3.11 which doesn't satisfy == 1.28.

 cpanm --look --dev 'Net::SMTP@2.35'
--> Working on Net::SMTP
Fetching ... OK
Entering /home/kent/.cpanm/work/1512906359.15340/libnet-1.28 with /bin/bash
