You really want the latest, v1.6.923. Saying that, the ‘1.006001' is a perl versioning conversion used for dealing with three-point versions. It’s even used for the perl binary; if you use perl 5.18.1 the official 2-point version is 5.018001 (if you want to specify the minimal perl version in a script, ‘use 5.018001’)
