Mojo::UserAgent doesn't have a $VERSION variable, so various techniques for determining what version of the module you have, don't work.

It is part of the Mojolicious distribution, so you can check the version of Mojolicious.

Actually, I've been meaning to comment. I had always thought the convention was that every module in a distribution should have a version number, and often they're all the same. This was probably established (in my mind) by LPW. I just checked libnet, and noticed that the modules all have VERSIONs, but they're different.

I'm writing a review of modules which can be used to make HTTP requests. I keep track of whether I've got the latest version by checking VERSION. This is fairly widely documented / described as a valid approach. I don't use Mojolicious for anything else, so the only module I'm interested in is Mojo::UserAgent, and I want to know if I've got the latest version.
