Description: ------------ Hi, I think there is something unclear in the PEAR command line utility. Someone asked me to check the version, and at first I gave him the wrong version because of this. When you give for example "pear info DB_DataObject_FormBuilder" you get the following: [root@webserver certificates]# pear info DB_DataObject_FormBuilder About pear.php.net/DB_DataObject_FormBuilder-1.0.0RC4 ===================================================== Release Type PEAR-style PHP-based Package Name DB_DataObject_FormBuilder Channel pear.php.net Summary Class to automatically build HTML_QuickForm ... a lot of text ... Optional Dependencies Package pear.php.net/Date Package pear.php.net/HTML_Table package.xml version 2.0 Last Modified 2006-03-19 16:51 Last Installed Version 1.0.0RC2 [root@webserver certificates]# The "Last Installed Version" confused me. Obviously 1.0.0RC2 is not the latest installed version, because the latest installed version is this function, and that is 1.0.0RC4. The "Last Installed Version" should be named "Previous Installed Version" I think. Test script: --------------- pear info DB_DataObject_FormBuilder Expected result: ---------------- Previous Installed Version 1.0.0RC2 Actual result: -------------- Last Installed Version 1.0.0RC2

Greg, please choose a better wording or bogus it. It sounds clear to me, however it is true that it can be confusing.

This bug has been fixed in CVS. If this was a documentation problem, the fix will appear on pear.php.net by the end of next Sunday (CET). If this was a problem with the pear.php.net website, the change should be live shortly. Otherwise, the fix will appear in the package's next release. Thank you for the report and for helping us make PEAR better.
