Dist::Zilla::Plugin::ReversionOnRelease - Bump and reversion $VERSION on release


  prompt = 1
  match = \.pm$


This is a Dist::Zilla plugin that bumps version (a la perl-reversion -bump) in-place with the .pm files inside lib. You should most likely use this plugin in combination with Dist::Zilla::Plugin::VersionFromModule so that current VERSION is taken out of your main module, and then the released file is written back after the release with Dist::Zilla::Plugin::CopyFilesFromRelease.

Unlike perl-reversion, this module uses Version::Next to get more naturally incremented version, instead of a little strict 3-digit rules in Perl::Version.

You should not use this plugin with any code munging or Pod::Weaver plugins.

By default, this plugin bumps version by the smallest possible increase - if you have 0.001, the next version is 0.002. You can override that by either running the plugin with prompt option to give the desired value from the prompt, or by setting the environment variable V:

  > V=1.001000 dzil release
