Yes, that's why I'm suggesting doing it for 0.88, so we have time to
patch whatever needs to be patched.
About newer activity versions with dotted version numbers not updating
older ones in <=0.86 because they are interpreted as older, I guess we
have three options:
- accept it as-is, activity authors that want older versions of Sugar
to update to their bundles need to also produce bundles with undotted
version numbers (messy),
- patch older versions to recognize the new scheme (won't be possible
for many/most deployments),
- start the dotted series from the last integer used: Browse-112.1,
Browse-112.2, etc (ugly).
Any better options?
