Should Tutorials Be Made Primarily With 3.5.11 or 4.0?

Recommended Posts

Hello. :)


Just out of curiosity, if I wanted to make a tutorial for beginners, which version of paint.net should be used for the tutorial? I would make references for both, but should I primarily explain things from a 3.5.11 perspective or a 4.0 perspective? This would include both written tutorials and youtube tutorials.

4.0 will soon(ish) become the required version.  We haven't discussed the issue, but I'm betting users will be STRONGLY ENCOURAGED to write tutorials from a 4.0 perspective when 4.0 becomes public.


Personally, I'd write tutorials for 4.0 and highlight the variations 3.5.11 requires.

I don't think any existing 3.5.11 tutorials will be removed (we've discussed adding a warning to the top of older tutorials until the authors edit them), but I imagine that once 4.0 has a month or two under its belt, we'll start requiring 4.0 (i.e. locking noncompliant tutorials).  Not that it will be a huge issue for most of the tutorials posted; they'll probably be compatible with either version with only minor accommodation.


The Doctor: There was a goblin, or a trickster, or a warrior... A nameless, terrible thing, soaked in the blood of a billion galaxies. The most feared being in all the cosmos. And nothing could stop it, or hold it, or reason with it. One day it would just drop out of the sky and tear down your world.
Amy: But how did it end up in there?
The Doctor: You know fairy tales. A good wizard tricked it.
River Song: I hate good wizards in fairy tales; they always turn out to be him.
