Re: Portscout wrong 'New version'

Hello Nuno,

regarding this, portscout is documented to use perl regex. I didn't try
myself so far, but this *should* mean [0-9] could be simplified to \d.

Of course, then it wouldn't include a dot (.)

But then, no version number will ever *start* with a dot (I assume).
With PORTSCOUT limit, I'd try to be as permissive as possible. \d\.\d
seems to be a (perl regex) pattern matching most "sane" version numbers
(and reject other tags appearing on github).

Cheers, Felix
