Summary0001738: dot omits string quotes around attributes such as width=1

in graphviz 2.24.0 version of dot
dot -Tdot >

converts floats that are integral (such as 1.00) to integers (such as 1)
and further more omits the "" around the number as in
width=1 where 2.20 produces width="1.00"

This causes parsers that used to work on dot layout output to break.
Was there a reason for this incompatability?
Is there a fix short of going back to 2.20
which seems to have some dependency problems
on a Mac with out XCode installed.

Additional Information
look at node 10

Sorry, but thats a bug in your parser. There is no requirement in DOT for quotes around
strings that don't contain special characers (like '.' or ',')

Probably whats changed in 2.24 is that we've converted more of dot's internals to floats, so you are seeing more strings like "1.001"
