Hi Rodrigo,

Not sure which tutorials are you following, but if you are looking at
trac.openscenegraph.org yes, they are totally out of date. Probably we
should think in finally remove the trac. All the resources are now in
www.openscenegraph.org. Also and a part from the books which are a great
resource, ( by the way you can get an electronic copy so you can read in
your screen, copy/paste etc ) I would suggest to follow Robert's advice and
learn from the examples. IMO is the best/first place to look in order to
understand better an OSG feature.
