Some questions apply to functionality present only in (or after) certain versions. Others are for legacy versions such as 5.2.

Mr.W could you add the featured tag to this, as it is coming up a lot lately? –  rcollyer Nov 29 '12 at 2:28

Tagging it is redundant on a site on Mathematica. Since version 5 is still fairly used by folks (going by questions on SO), I suggest through and for the rest.

I don't see the need for having tags for minor releases and tags for the current & future versions. That might give the impression that the question is applicable only to, say, version 8, and not to 9, which will probably not be true for most cases. I can see the use in creating when 9 is out and there is a difference between 8 and 9, but not prior to that, merely to differentiate between 8 and previous versions.

I also think that a version specific tag should be added only when it is definitely something that's different from the current version. E.g., "How do I plot Sin[x]? I'm using version 7" should not require .

I must agree, version-x is verbose enough that it doesn't require little effort to interpret it. –  rcollyer Jan 20 '12 at 16:20
I agree with version-x as the standard as well. –  Verbeia Jan 21 '12 at 4:47
