Choose between version 3.20 and 4.3
The 4.x API introduces new capabilities such as 3D support, map rotation, and deeper portal integration. However, not all 3.x capabilities are included in the initial 4.x release. Each release will add more functionality until it not only matches 3.x but far exceeds it. Developers should consider their app requirements and evaluate whether the current 4.x or 3.x release has the desired capabilities. For example:
- Does the app need 3D visualization? If so, use 4.x.
- Do you need a particular functionality from 3.x that's not yet available in 4.x such as drawing tools? If so, use 3.x.
