  • Hi!

    slightly off-topic, but here's a list of distribution of major version numbers of modules on CPAN (where a major version number is something like $version=~/^(\d+)\..*/:

    sqlite> select count(version_major) as cnt,version_major from cpants group by version_major order by version_major;
    cnt version_major
    ---------- -------------

    4073 0
    1752 1
    272 2
    69 3
    22 4
    17 5
    2 6
    2 8
    1 11
    1 19
    1 96
    1 98
    2 101
    1 800
    1 804
    1 1998
    1 1999
    1 2001
    3 2002
    6 2003
    2 9999
    1 20020902

    Or, 64,17% of distributions are versioned 0.x and thus might be regarded as "beta" by some people.
