Yes. The way version resolving works with Debian packages is that ~ is a
universal "lower than" modifier. So 1.0-1~foo is older than 1.0-1. This
is useful for allowing packagers to create preview releases of packages,
which will be upgraded to "real" versions when the opportunity arises.
So -2~pre1 is newer than -1~pre2, and both are older than -2
