Subject: Version numbering not numerically increasing
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 517b
The version numbering is not numerically increasing, which not only breaks packaging tools that rely on correct versioning, but even the ticket system here on rt.cpan.org (see the select boxes for the versions above to learn which release order rt assumes). Most importantly, this also breaks the CPAN module, because it prevents an "upgrade" from 0.99 to 0.100. CPAN refuses the "upgrade" because it thinks that the installed version is still up-to-date. I suggest that you continue with version 1.05 after 0.104.

Hello, As the existing versioning schema is out of date and does break a lot of tracking systems, I've opted to begin using the CVS version. This will better reflect the version that I maintain since I appear to be the only active author on this module. Thanks for spotting this problem and thanks for your interest in this module.
