The extensions installer reports the "available version" by scraping the versions page on twiki.org. However it reports the installed version by examining the $VERSION variable in the extension. These are often inconsistent.

The extensions installer probably needs to use the version number in the topic, as that should be consistent and is the only thing recoverable from t.o.

Discovered that the real reason was the BuildContrib failing to expand $Rev correctly. Also noticed CommentPlugin was missing a version field in the table.


Thanks Crawford! Don't stop working on the extensions installer, cause this is great! Although it might look like noone is using it, that's not true! Because it comes with 4.1.1 there will be many talks about it soon, I'm sure. smile

It's too bad that there are still extension developers that don't use the BuildContrib for easing their lives and that of their 'customers'. wink

Thanks, Franz, it's good to get some feedback!
