It used to be that few tutorials were updated to 3.x, but I know at least
Alan's is finished(right?).

The big issue with going to 3.1 is that most of the modules haven't been
ported yet, so if you want to use any cool 3rd party modules you may have

For beginning there's probably nothing wrong with 3.1, but I think I'd
recommend sticking with 2.6.
