When you spend 2 days trying to figure out why your shit is breaking just to realize you have been reading v2 docs and not v3 #fml

    Just wait until they release v4 but don’t update the docs for six weeks.

    @hubiruchi indeed, read the source when available. Teaches you quite a lot.

    If you develop API the best thing you can do is version them:
    foo.com/API/v1/FindBarByID?Bar=1
    —returns Bar JSON Object v1
    vs
    foo.com/API/v2/FindBarByID?Bar=1
    —returns Bar JSON Object v2

    Are you reading Boto documentation? I've been there

    This is also fail of the docs, which upon googling should always show the latest version, and if you want, you should be able to switch.

    @piehole the docs cannot do much about it. When I google something about laravel it will show me the latest docs 9 out of 10 times. Once in a while I look for something which had a rename. And will get the old docs.

    When I lookup the docs manually it will show me the latest stable version.
