Comment (by ubitux):

 Replying to [comment:4 cehoyos]:
 > I honestly wonder if this is really an enhancement that we should put
 effort into: We ship every release with documentation that contains the
 features of the release and we explicitly ask users on the website to use
 current git head (both on the download and the bug reporting page) so I
 wonder why a user expects to find documentation for outdated versions on
 the website.

 People tend to like communication (the fools...) and point out links to
 the documentation (on forums, irc, or whatever online medium). To help a
 random user with a given version (assuming it's a recent enough
 "snapshot"), it's nice to be able to point out to a documentation matching
 their version (and it's simpler for everyone to just click a link than
 looking for a particular section in the manpage. FFmpeg is not packaged
 with the HTML doc.
