Can I still use v3?

Hello, I'm trying to follow a tutorial from Javascript Mastery and I think he used the v3 of refine. Would I still be able to use that version to create my application and then just migrate it to 4 once done?

---------------------- Yes, you can still use refine v3 to create your application and then migrate it to v4 once you're done. Refine v4 provides backward compatibility for some features like authProvider and routerProvider by using legacyAuthProvider and legacyRouterProvider respectively. However, it's recommended to eventually migrate to the new features and interfaces provided in v4. When you're ready to migrate, you can follow the migration guide from 3.x.x to 4.x.x (https://refine.dev/docs/migration-guide/3x-to-4x) to update your project accordingly. This guide covers changes in package names, updates to dataProvider, authProvider, routerProvider, and other necessary steps for a smooth migration. ----------------------
