Possibly you're not grasping how software version numbers work

A.B.C is newer than D.E.F if and only if:

  * A > D, or
  * A = D and B > E, or
  * A = D, B = E, and C > F.

(That is, within on element of a version number, the values are
numerically ordered, but the elements themselves are are
lexicographically ordered from left to right.)

This is why 3.2.x > 3.1.15, for any x.
