Bower installing a very old version (0.3.0) #60
I'm not sure if bluebird supports bower or not, but it's listed in the repository and attempting to install bluebird will install version 0.3.0.
It seems to be related to this bower/semver issue.
All versions that include dashes are being treated as "pre-release" versions.
This problem might be overcome by creating a bower.json but I need to confirm this.
bower should probably install the "normal version" that is the next lowest version of the "major.minor.patch" of the current pre-release version.
Instead of ignoring all pre-release versions.

Putting aside the disagreement on how Bower resolves the latest package, in the very least it would be beneficial to document this somewhere.
Although it didn't take long to figure out that I had the wrong version, it's not something you want people to be constantly hitting.
