  • You plugged a memory leak and that makes it a version 2.0? Gee, I don't really care how many years it has taken, but that seems to me like a too big a version jump, regardless.

      Isn't that really up to him? He could have changed the version to 5 if he wanted to.
      • Or 6. That seems to be very popular with Microsoft. Sun, with Java, also pulls weird stunts in regard to version numbers. They've lost me on the way.

        Most Perl modules never even make it to version 1.00, not even after years and lots of heavy use. Win32::API for example.
      • Anyway, when a module version jumps from version 1.x to version 2.0, I've come to expect something more than a bug fix.
        • So the doubled performance and code cleanups don’t do it for you?

          And in any case, why would you care? Are you a heavy user of Text::Metaphone or something?
