|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 )"
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
