What is the Difference between SQL Developer 4.2 and 17.3?

What is the Difference between SQL Developer 4.2 and 17.3?  AND why would one install one over the other?  4.2 is quick and easy to get up and running compared to 17.3 AND they can both be installed on the same workstation.

This is how I break the two
versions down, based on my experience, however, I may be wrong since I cannot
find ANY confirmation on Oracle’s Mess of a site for my
conclusion.

SQL Developer 4.2 -  Quick
install, users who are just going to query the DB and export results to Excel,
.CSV, tab delimited .TXT etc

SQL Developer 17.3 – Long
install, for developers who use a multitude of tools (Visual Studio, SAS,
Access etc.)

Thanks
