Older version publication dates are incorrect
What I Wanted to Do
On a project page, below the project name, the version, the publication status (public/private) and the publication date are displayed next to each other. For an older version of the package, you would want to see the selected version and the publication date of that version.
What Happened Instead
Instead the publication date of the latest version is displayed next to the old version number.
- Open any npm package page with more than one version.
- Switch to the Versions tab.
- Select an older version (note the publication date next to the version number).
- Now below the package name you see the selected version number not the corresponding publication date.
