jep i agree they're the same - i think it's a matter of wrong denotation so due to my knowledge there's nothing like old 
and newer messages -> the current 'contemporary' message for enabling the analog inputs is:
[analogIns pinumber 1=on; 0=off(
f.e. to enable analog pin 1:
[analogIns 1 1(
correct me if i'm wrong!

right behind the [pd SWITCHING-INPUTS] is a comment "<- example of switching inputs on and off (optional)"

jep right so with firmata the analogIns have to be enabled explicitly to use them. i think the (optional) comment 
somehow makes it ambiguous. as told i'll try to consider this in the improvements we're working on!
