Consider xzilla. As of this writing, it says that the latest version of Omnipitr is 0.0.5. This is true, but xzilla did not release that version; depesz did.

So I think it should list the latest version only for that user.

We might also then need to change the link used in PGXN::Site so that it links to the proper version, rather than to the latest version, in the user's profile.

Hrm. Actually, xzilla released v0.0.5, so his JSON is correct. And depesz released v0.5.0 (not the same thing!), so his JSON is also correct. And I think it's better to always have the link to the latest version from the user profile, as that is what the user is most likely to want to see, anyway.

Although that's not what search.cpan.org does. For example, Allison Randal's page lists and links to Pod::Simple 3.09, not to the latest release of Pod::Simple. metacpan.org, OTOH, does not list Pod::Simple for Allison at all. That seems weirder. Will ponder a bit more…

Decided that the search.cpan.org method was best.
