Yes, and they are different bugs from the current version.  Regression is a very real problem.  In fact, there's a song about it:

  99 little bugs in the code,
  99 bugs in the code...
  Take one out, compile again,
  100 little bugs in the code.

Repeat until bug count goes to zero :-)

Yes its very important to hoenstly follow the learning curve without jumping to shortcuts of getting higher version. Every higher version has just few more features added. Its required to make your hands dirty with the lower versions and master it. Many times newly released versions have bugs too and I would say if good and dedicated time is spent on lower versions, it doesnt take much time to master the higher versions too.

@EREBUS0  Not every upgrade is useful.


And can actually be a downgrade when the latest removes attributes of the earlier (and better) version.

Great idea until you run across that hiring manager or tech head hunter who only knows the lastest version number after looking at a sales advertisment.

AMEN!

I have seen too many people running from version to version and language to language to the point were they are profficient in NOTHING!

I would rather have someone who has taken years to learn one version to perfection than be up on the latest.  I want people who can do things.  One year's experience in one version and then starting over means you only have one year's experience.

You should be paid appropriately.

Be a master at something before you run to the next version.  Not every upgrade is useful.  Espicially if the old version does most of what you need.

 

Just my opinion.
