Here is a comprehensive list of the pros and cons of each StepMania version:
|Has widescreen AR||*||✓|
|Can play SMO||**||✓|
|Runs on Windows||✓||✓||✓||✓|
|Runs on OS X||***||✓|
*3.95 will only scale the theme. It will stretch background images and videos.
**3.95 can not enter password-protected rooms.
***My experience with 3.9 on OS X 10.3/4 is that there are fatal noteskin errors right out of the box.
So as you can see, StepMania 3.9+ is obviously the preferred application if you are playing offline (it’s also the version I create and test simfiles in). If you play online, I would recommend StepMania 4.0 SVN/Alpha, but some people still find StepMania 3.95 to be more stable than 4.
