There's a problem with the indexing of this distribution in CPAN, the 02packages.details.txt.gz doesn't list the v1.14.0 release: Text::Autoformat 1.13 D/DC/DCONWAY/Text-Autoformat-1.13.tar.gz Thanks.

The reason is of course that the version arithmetic between folating point and multidot notation strikes % perl -le 'use version;print version->new("1.13") <=> version->new("1.14.0");' 1 To beat 1.13 one nees something like 1.130.1, 1.131.0, or 2.0.0 I'd like to see a new release that sets this straight.

The problem is that it's mixing numeric version (1.13) with extended version (1.14.0), in version.pm parlance. If you use the new qv operator/function, you get the desired result: $ perl -le 'use version;print qv("1.13") <=> qv("1.14.0");' -1 Sadly, CPAN::Version doesn't use this per default. Can this somehow be fixed? Thanks again, Tincho. -- Martín Ferrari
This was dealt with a while ago.
