There's already a shorter link available since there's a shorter link
for all release docs that doesn't have the version number:

But I guess that's still long :-( You can add an appropriate redirect
yourself though. Just change either
(with the usual beta testing, then merge to live). The former if you
want a root looking link. And the latter if you want a "/doc/*" link.



Note, you should redirect to the "/doc/libs/release/..." so that it
repoints to the current docs. Although there's a long standing repquest
by Dave to be able to update the getting started without having to
update the release ZIPs.
