I’ve been following the Embedder Plugin stats page on WordPress.org with some amusement over the last few days. Not because of the number of daily downloads, which is typical of a new plugin, but because of the statistics for the Active Versions of the plugin.
I can assure you that I have published just four versions—0.1, 0.2, 0.3, and 0.4—in a nice, calm, orderly fashion, but WordPress seems to have other ideas!
According to the Active Versions pie chart, there are no fewer than seven versions of the Embedder plugin out there:
0.2, 0.3, 1.0, 1.0.0 (!), 1.1, 1.2, and 1.3
And the numbers associated with these mostly mythical versions seem completely random.
I have no idea where the data is supposed to be coming from, or if I am doing something that’s confusing the system, so maybe it’s merely being clairvoyant—predicting a long and successful life for the Embedder plugin, and many more versions to come!
Well, I guess we shall have to wait and see… 🙂
