They are different. In particular:

- 3.0.10 contains the features in versions 3.0.0, but with bugfixes.
It's the next in the series of 3.0.0, 3.0.1, 3.0.2, and so on to 3.0.9
and 3.0.10. Typically, 3.0.X releases don't add major features,
instead being smaller bugfix releases.
- 3.10 contains major changes added since 3.9. It's the next in the
series of 3.0, 3.1, 3.2, and so on to 3.9 and 3.10. Any of those
releases may have added major features.
