Description Helder Magalh 2009-05-06 05:45:46 UTC
Following the version link ("v0.8.5" as of this writing) leads to a previous history entry [1] (corresponding to version 0.8.4), whereas the current version link [2] would be expected.

Although a trivial issue, it can become a bit misleading: for example, I've taken a few seconds before realizing that the history entry wasn't the expected one (and, given that I knew exactly what to search for within the history entry, that wasn't even a typical use-case).

I've searched within the bug tracker and the mailing list and didn't find anything appropriate (but keyword-based searches can sometimes slip the desired items so please feel free to point me out to relevant issues and/or mailing list threads).


Steps to reproduce:
1. Open the report's URL [3];
2. Follow the version link (found at the bottom of the page).

Expected results:
Retrieved link would be the hash corresponding to the latest version entry [2] ("0.8.5", dated from 2009-03-26).

Actual results:
Retrieved link corresponds to the previous version entry [1] ("0.8.4", dated from 2008-11-20).
