It is my understanding that the standard for version numbers (called vers?) on the Mac OS is 1.2.3x255 where 1,2,3 can be any digit from 0-9, x can be d,a,b,f and 255 can be any number from 0-255

The existing versioning system makes it really hard to upload a minor version change or a bug fix. Especially since you apparently can't overwrite a version.

This, combined with the fact that widgets are stored physically on your server amd the fact that any modifications makes your widget disappear until approved, is making it increasingly hard to deal with new releases.

The system needs some re-thinking.

They key to minor changes is to upload a version 2.11 (an upgrade from 2.1) or something like that. Bug fixes would qualify for a .01 increment.
