The plugin's page won't update (after commiting to SVN repo) (2 posts)

    I committed my latest version of my plug-in to the SVN repository, but I accidentally marked the stable tag as a tag that didn't exist (0.3.2). I created the new tag, but the plug-in's page won't fetch the new readme.txt file. It shows the information which is fetched from the plug-in's description which is located within the main PHP script.

    I know the page should update itself at every 15 minutes, but I committed the new tag directory for almost an hour ago. I have the feeling that it might look like this till the next release (hopefully) if you don't have a look at your application. Can you check if everything is OK?

    Oh happy day ... I found the issue. After it did it again (the dumb thing released my development version) I was kinda pissed and I started to validate my readme.txt files from the repository. It appears that the parser (aka the readme validator) is too dumb for UTF-8 char encoding, thus it needs ANSI. Would you be kind enough to specify this over here, http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/about/#readme ? Other people might encounter the same issue. It's a royal pain in the [censored] to see that the versions won't obey the 'Stable' tag markup from the readme.txt with no apparent reason.
