	  	apologize that I didn't make a release with it. Real life was
	  	intruding too strongly.

	  	anticipating the likely changes we're gonna see with a better

	  	The new indexer will be based on version.pm 0.48 and will bring
	  	the substantial change that all modules that are using version
	  	strings will be represented as floats according to the 
	  	routine implemented in version.pm. Up to now the conversion from
	  	version strings to floats was lossy but with the new version.pm 
	  	is a well defined 1 to 1 mapping. See version.pm for the 
	  	To make the transition smoother, I'm intending to leave the
	  	indexer with the old algorithm for all strings that look like
	  	floating point numbers, and for other strings that contain an
	  	underline character or alphabetical stuff.
	  	Future plans: once we have rolled out the version related 
	  	I'm planning to fix open bugs and integrate waiting patches that
	  	have not yet made their way into CPAN.pm.
