OpenCV 3.0.0 is the beta version and 2.4.10 is the latest stable release. Version 3.0.0 has additional functionality built in to it and has extra modules available through the opencv_contrib repository -->

As for which to select, it is entirely up to your preference and needs. Although I would recommend working with 3.0.0 as it has additional features and it would be a good idea to start getting used to it. I can also recommend two separate installs (one for 3.0.0 and one for 2.4.10) on your workstation so that you can use and experiment with both versions.

Take a look at this link. It should give you some idea for the transition from 2.4.10 to 3.0.0

Thanks! IMHO, there's not enough information available on the differences between both of them, in general. In understand 3.0 is a beta, but I guess that having more info would help people test and experiment with it.

Ok, I guess I should write a tutorial about what I've learned since I work with 3.0 instead of complaining ;)
