#2616: No link to "latest" version of a library

 Except for legacy libraries that have a suitable redirect link from
 {{{libs/}}}''libraryname''{{{/}}}, there is now no way to produce a link
 to the latest documentation for a given library. Also, the "permanent"
 redirects from {{{libs/}}}''libraryname''{{{/}}} keep getting updated to
 point at whatever the latest version happens to be. I'm no expert, but
 I'm guessing that's bad web practice. In addition to links like
 http://www.boost.org/doc/libs/1_37_0/doc/html/mpi.html can't we also have

 Also (separate feature), if I know the name of the library, can't you give
 me a reasonably short URL that will visit its latest docs without having
 to navigate there? That's especially bad if it's impossible (see #2490).
