#8992 closed (fixed)

Documentation link in should point to "stable" docs.

The "Documentation" link in should point to the documentation for the latest stable release (1.0) instead of the in-progress one.

It seems it's not possible to jump between versions right now anyway :o

No, it's not clear that it should. The goal is always to keep things up to date and indicate when new information is added to the docs, so people using 1.0.x will be able to see when things are new in 1.1.

Keeping open, since a link from the dev docs to the 1.0 docs is missing. We'll need to add that. Putting it in the right component as well.

From my POV: When Average Joe goes to "Download" Option 1 is "Get the latest version" (released one) option 2, SVN. Then on "Documentation" Joe would love to get "The documentation of *the latest version*" by default (Option 1) and then a big link to the SVN ones (a big button "The bleeding edge").

If we show the SVN docs by default the note that used to say "This are the docs for the SVN version of django.. you may want to read <link to the latest released version docs>" should come back and be somehow visible. If not, people could "not see" the .. version[added|changed]:: things, and blame us!

Just my 0.0000002 ;)

The 1.0 docs are now available (; I'm keeping the SVN ones as the default. There is a message, now.
