    The 'old' CPAN indexer treated a version number like x.y.z as x.y, effectively chopping off the 'z'... so z and z+1 or for that matter z-1 all ended up as the same version in the indexes, and would be perpetually marked as 'up to date' until the minor version (y) got upped.

    Andreas is working on a change to the indexer that will use version.pm to translate x.y.z to a float that can be , but it's not there yet. Until then, I agree with the poster -- do not use x.y.z versions unless you *absolutely* must, and be aware of the consequences if you do.
