    Re: Which sentence is the correct one?

    Neither is fluent. I would prefer you to say:

    "I've only just learned about this environment."

    'only just' , in this context, means immediately before this time, a minute ago, and you would use the present perfect tense because of this. Use the past simple if you learned about it yesterday or at some other defined time.
