A plea to bloggers and tutorial authors–especially Microsoft

Please, please, please date your writing and include the versions of the products you’re writing about. Make it very obvious. It’s not helpful to find a tutorial that doesn’t include the version information, only to find that it doesn’t still apply, has been superseded, works differently, or needs, oh, say, updated namespaces and project references. I’m looking at you Visual Studio 2010 Prism and MVVM and MVC.
