UI not the same

There seems to be a mixup in this course. First I started taking this course about 2 weeks ago, and then it was removed and added again as new. In the first videos it seemed that you upgraded the course from Unity 5.0 to Unity 5.5, which would be nice since I have 5.5 installed. However, in this video the Window menu's content, as well as the Lighting setup panel's content, is not the same on Unity 5.5 on my computer and in the software used by the instructor.

This is how my lighting panel looks: https://www.dropbox.com/s/mbx8cm0u0bi1azj/Unity%20lighting.png?dl=0 and you can compare it to the one in the video at around 1:40.

I would like you to please clarify what's going on here. Are you using Unity 5.0 and 5.5 mixed in this course? It seems like a terrible idea.

Hi Gabor,

This course was updated to reflect the latest changes in the Lighting Window in Unity 5.6, which was released on March 31st. You can download the latest version of Unity here: https://store.unity.com/download?ref=personal

The rest of the course is the same, because none of the other concepts demonstrated have changed since Unity 5.0 - if we were to reshoot the course with the latest version, I would just be re-reading the script verbatim.

Hopefully that helps, sorry for the confusion!

Unity growing good, fast and improving itself. You can have multiple Unity installed on your PC.
