Question about Third party services such as Appthwack or sauce labs

After looking into several of these third party uses for appium I noticed that they all use older versions of appium. Is there a reason why? Appthwack’s is so old it is missing a ton of features. I fear that I am the one messing this up, anyone else having these issues?

In general service providers don’t provide up to date versions of appium (such as the master branch) because it takes resources that they’d rather spend elsewhere. With that said, Sauce supports all appium releases (including appium 1.3.4 which is the current released version). You request the version via a desired capability.

caps['appiumVersion'] = "1.3.4"
