It may be a good idea to take the documentation from the side
instead of the side
There seem to be some subtle issues that sometimes prevent the proper updating of the documentation at http://www.boost.org/doc/ (track tickets for this have been filled multiple times). This has hit me when I tried to learn Boost.Build, because I downloaded the (extremely) outdated manual
instead of the current one
and then subscribed to boost.build asking silly questions that would have been covered at length in the current version of the manual.
A recent message from Steven Watanabe ("This has been available on the beta site since November
but hasn't been merged to the live site.") just reminded me of this, so I checked and found out that the problems are not resolved yet.
I learned from the comments at the tickets that this is something more subtle/difficult than a simple merge, but as long as these issues are not resolved, it seems better to recommend http://beta.boost.org/doc instead of http://www.boost.org/doc.
