I updated readme.txt Stable Tag and tagged versions 0.2, 0.3 and latest 0.3.1 in SVN. After checkin, the new version is recognized only partly:

  • On the dev-tab it links to the latest version (0.3.1) in the svn repository.
  • The link-text still reads "0.1"
  • The download button reads "Download Version 0.1"
  • All other versions are listed under "other versions"

Plugin: http://wordpress.org/plugins/geouri/developers/

Question: How to make the directory recognize version 0.3.1 ?

Did you update the stable tag number in both \trunk and in \tags\0.3.1? – Chip Bennett Aug 20 '13 at 14:02
Yes, both are on Stable tag: 0.3.1 – Simon Aug 20 '13 at 14:13

You need to make sure you update version numbers in all relevant locations:

  • \trunk
    • readme.txt
    • pluginfile.php
  • \tags\{tag}
    • pluginfile.php
    • (note: you should update readme.txt, but outside of trunk, it's only for aesthetics)

In this case, you updated readme.txt in \trunk, but you didn't update the Plugin file in \trunk or in \tags\0.3.1.
