Subject: Decreasing version number
Please take into account that 0.5.7 is smaller than 0.56. Alternatives exist: % perl -le ' use version; for (@ARGV){ print $_, ": ", version->new($_) <=> version->new("0.56"); } ' 0.5.7 0.560.1 0.561.0 1.0.0 0.5.7: -1 0.560.1: 1 0.561.0: 1 1.0.0: 1 Please adjust your release versions. Users who have written use Algorithm::Evolutionary 0.56; now need to rewrite their programs and downgrade. Probably not what you intended. Thanks,

Thanks; I'll go back to the old numbering scheme. JJ
I have gone back to the former, dotless, numeration scheme. I'll change back when I turn 1.0. Thanks JJ
