Having plugin docs versioned with the plugin is definitely the idea. Only
guides & specs will remain in
For changes in CLI / guides, then we should call out when features were
added right inline in the docs.

For the events APIs, I think the button events should be moved into a
plugin. That would leave only deviceready, pause, resume.

We don't actually have this right now since plugins are uncoupled. If you
wanted right now to take the release version of everything and tag it, I
think you'd be fine to just use a timestamp as the label.
