I'm a bit of a beginner to beamer and have been using

\frame{
stuff
}

until now. Today I received a tex file to merge into my lecture material and see the use of

\begin{frame}
 stuff
\end{frame}

I was just wondering if there is a difference between the two and whether I should be using the latter? Does it allow more functionality?

Quote from the beamer user guide:

The command \frame is supported for legacy documents.

If you are writing new code, you should use

\begin{frame}
 stuff
\end{frame}

otherwise you might sooner or later run into problems, for example \frame with options
