Item12583: revert to simple floats in $VERSION

This breaks updating plugins on RHEL and SLES which ship an incompatible version.pm

use version; our $VERSION = version->declare("v1.2.0");

Instead, I'll use:

our $VERSION = '1.20';
our $RELEASE = '1.20';

... simple and compatible.

See also Item12225 and Development.ConvertToModernPerlVersionStrings

I'll take care of plugins that I maintain at first. These are:

  1. CaptchaPlugin DONE
  2. DBCacheContrib DONE
  3. DBCachePlugin DONE
  4. EditChapterPlugin DONE
  5. FlexFormPlugin DONE
  6. ImagePlugin DONE
  7. JSTreeContrib DONE
  8. JQTwistyContrib DONE
  9. JQueryPlugin DONE
  10. JsonRpcContrib DONE
  11. MetaCommentPlugin DONE
  12. MoreFormfieldsPlugin DONE
  13. NatEditPlugin
  14. PiwikPlugin DONE
  15. SetVariablePlugin DONE
  16. SolrPlugin
  17. SqlPlugin DONE
  18. TrashPlugin DONE
  19. UpdatesPlugin DONE
  20. VirtualHostingContrib

Other plugins affected and in danger of breaking during an update are:

  1. AutoViewTemplatePlugin DONE
  2. BuildContrib
  3. CommentPlugin DONE
  4. CompareRevisionsAddonPlugin DONE
  5. EditRowPlugin DONE
  6. EmptyContrib DONE
  7. EmptyPlugin DONE
  8. FamFamFamContrib DONE
  9. HistoryPlugin DONE
  10. HomePagePlugin DONE
  11. InterwikiPlugin
  12. JEditableContrib
  13. JQueryPlugin
  14. JSCalendarContrib DONE
  15. MailerContrib
  16. PatternSkin
  17. PreferencesPlugin
  18. PublishPlugin
  19. RenderListPlugin
  20. SpreadSheetPlugin
  21. SubscribePlugin
  22. TablePlugin DONE
  23. TinyMCEPlugin DONE
  24. TopicUserMappingContrib
  25. TWikiCompatibilityPlugin
  26. TwistyPlugin DONE
  27. UnitTestContrib
  28. WysiwygPlugin

Just to name those in common use (add more if you find a use version ...->declare( in them.)

The solution is to install the latest CPAN:version. Any perl >= 5.10.1 will have the correct version. It's quite simple to install the latest version, and it ensures we'll be compatible with new perl going forward.

Sure this is a solution ... after having upgraded and seeing their Foswiki going down in flames. Not good.

This happens on current RHEL and SLES. Distrowatch says the situation is not going to get better any time soon. I hope they are wrong.

What do people next? Of course they revert the upgrade. Some fearless soles might google for the error, find 100s other hate messages about failing plugin updates ... and one search hit is about their very own upgrade guide that they didn't read in the first place (they never do).

So we HAVE to paddle backwards OR ship a working version.pm with upcoming Foswikies ... which of course won't mitigate the situation for people running Foswiki < 1.1.9 yet still in need of plugin upgrades.
