The $TWiki::Plugins::VERSION is currently set to 1.510. To make it easier for plugin developers to implement TWiki version dependent code it is better to align the Plugins version with the TWiki release version. It needs to remain numeric so that a number comparison can be done. New convention:

  • TWiki-6.0.0 has $TWiki::Plugins::VERSION = 6.00
  • TWiki-6.0.1 has $TWiki::Plugins::VERSION = 6.01
  • TWiki-6.0.9 has $TWiki::Plugins::VERSION = 6.09
  • TWiki-6.0.10 has $TWiki::Plugins::VERSION = 6.091 (unlikely)

This change is safe because the current production release has a lower number.
