The difference is between this style: You can attach a disk image to a qube using qvm-block : qvm-block -A <target> [qube:]<file> (This syntax is not available in 4.0) and this: 3.0 You can attach a disk image to a qube using qvm-block : qvm-block -A <target> [qube:]<file> 4.0 You cannot attach a disk image to a qube using qvm-block. The advantage of using labelled sections is that it should be easier for users to find the material relevant to the version they are using. Also, that once 3.0 is retired, it will be simple to remove the 3.0 relevant material, rather than filleting our bits from each page. On the VPN case your own comment confirms that it would be better to provide a separate section, rather than trying to put "exceptions" in to the existing text. -- You received this message because you are subscribed to the Google Groups "qubes-users" group.
