I never have any idea what version somebody is talking about. I've encountered version specific bugs in any number of libraries. Wading through questions/answers to find appropriate solutions are never sorted by version really.
any thoughts on some sort of technique to indicate versions without being a hassle or get in the way? As SO gets older and older, I can see this becoming an issue.
Haha, what if in addition to tags there was a machine-learning enabled version suggestion dropdown =)
Glancing at .NET quickly, i see about 116,000 marked. Only about 9,000 indicate 2.0, 3.5 or 4.0 totalling about 7%. Maybe that's too static an example. I can see it's use for fast developing technologies.
Imagine a world where you did not waste 34 minutes reading answers to a question that only fixes it in the wrong version...
