Subject Re: [DISCUSS] Artemis Documentation for older releases on WebSite
Date Thu, 09 May 2019 17:18:56 GMT
I'm thinking about just keeping the _latest, as the download package
also includes the entire documentation.

Someone willing to use the old version would be able to look at the
specific version.. or even github/docs.
