Why would you want to hire someone that knows something pointless as the 
version where feature X has been introduced ? Just tell him that feature 
X has been introducted in version Y, costless 2.5sec training. Don't you 
want to hire someone that knows things you don't and benefit from each 
others abilities, learning from each others, improving the company 
global skill range ?
