Experimental variables no longer exist.

Hello guys!

So Guill uses $experimental-..... variables which are no longer available in compass. They are missing from the documentation too. What should I use to remove the opera prefixes (-o-) for the exercise?

http://sassmeister.com/gist/aad004be8dbbf408e2ae you can check this code example , yes experimental aren't used anymore but you can set the browsers you want with the $supported-browsers browsers() the default supports all also enable debug to see why some prefixes aren't included.

Plus Its important to have the variables set before imports if you mean to remove certain prefixes and fixes, like: https://github.com/Compass/compass/issues/1417

$graceful-usage-threshold: 100;
$critical-usage-threshold: 100;

@import "compass/css3";

For instance I wanted rid of all the zoom: 1 hacks as they fail CSS validation.

Finally, an important distinction (which was not clear at fist) is that $browser-minimum-versions: does not actually exclude broswers, rather it includes what otherwise would have been excluded: https://github.com/Compass/compass/pull/1524#issuecomment-51499351
