Subject: VERSION 2.10 means downgrade
there's $HTML::Template::VERSION = '2.10'; and it's interpreted as 2.1. It breaks at least HTML::Template::Expr which has use HTML::Template 2.4; as 2.10 < 2.4 solution: switch to "use version" ?
indeed, and that's the reason why 2.10 is not indexed, so people cannot upgrade automatically. they always get the message that 2.9 is uptodate.

It should've been 2.09. But basically it's too late now, you're going to have to release 3.00 then 3.01 etc. or similar. Also, version.pm is a cancer; please avoid. Just make sure you zero pad your versions so that they compare correctly numerically and you'll be fine.
I dropped down to version 2.91 and will continue in the 2.9x series until we get to some large planned changes for a 3.0 release
