in thread Don’t Repeat Your… version number

Devel::Required 0.07 now on its way to CPAN. It includes support for (assuming your module's version is 1.01) automatically replacing:
Version:
with:
Version: 1.01
in README type text files, and:
=head1 VERSION
with:
=head1 VERSION This documentation describes version 1.01.
in pod type files (such as your module's source) each time your run "perl Makefile.PL". The version information is automatically obtained form the generated "Makefile", so it automatically uses any heuristics that ExtUtils::MakeMaker uses. For more information, see the pod of Devel::Required.

For the people who can't wait until it is replicated all over the world, you can get a copy from my own CPAN directory

Have fun!
