Indeed, this page doesn't exist.

What we need to know is where you found that link...

This has been reported in the past; historically, the usage pattern has been:

  • Search for <new feature> in documentation
  • Find page in the documentation for version N
  • Read the header on the page that says that documentation applies to version N and "Click here for version N-1"
  • But the header is a dumb block of text, so it links to the corresponding, but nonexistent page in the version N-1 docs.

Unfortunately, there isn't a whole lot we can do without making the header a lot smarter with regards to documentation that doesn't exist. This is certainly possible, but has been more effort than anyone has been willing to put into the problem. Volunteers welcome :-)
