Whoops - there's a big flaw with that, which should have been picked up by one 
of us.

The code in question from script/dancer :

my $resp = 
if ($resp && $resp =~ m/Dancer-(\d\.\d+)\//) {

That's working on the naive and incorrect assumption that SUKRIA is the only 
user who will ever upload Dancer releases to CPAN.

This will be why I noticed earlier that dancer -a didn't tell me that 1.2000 
was now available.  Unfortunately, this means for everyone with earlier Dancer 
versions, the script won't be able to tell them about the shiny new 1.2, until 
Sukria next uploads a Dancer dist.

I'll raise an issue on Github so one of us can fix it.

Yeah, there's no reason that you shouldn't be able to pass a option to disable 
that behaviour - --no-version-check or similar.
