Working copy vs Branch

Message This is my first exposure to tortoisesvn and I apologies for the "dumb
question" in advance. I _have_ read the help and scanned the mailing
list and can't find a direct answer to my question.

I am a single developer using Delphi.

My project is at version 3.15 and I have a working copy in ...\MyApp
\Source

I want to start working on v3.16 and continue to have 3.15 available
so that I can fix bugs for the existing users and later carry these
bug fixes forward into my 3.16 source.

Do I simply make a new WC in (say) ...\MyAppv3.16\Source and start
working on my changes there?

If so, I presume that I do my bug fixes 3.15 and "commit" them, then
go to my 3.16 WC and "update". And not "commit" any 3.16 changes
until I have finished working on that version?

OR do I use branches?

TIA

Jeff
