It's not the version from 5 years ago; it's the version in the latest
release today! I don't know why you keep insisting otherwise.

Sure, the trunk may have had new changes for X years, but the trunk is
never released. Until your version is merged to release it remains the
version of tomorrow, not today.

Absolutely. The docs should be the best available documentation for the
code that ends up in the release. When the new version ends up there,
then we update the docs to match.
