I don't think this is the right something.

It needs to say something like "This is documentation for Cordova X, which was 
obsoleted on {DATE}, the current version is Y, which was released on {DATE} 
please see {reference} for more current documentation."
Or something scarier.

W3C has a similar problem -- it's hard to write decent "This is obsolete" and 
"These are not the droids you're looking for" annotations.

Well, actually.

He's blaming it the same way he's blaming us.

JQM didn't knock on the door of those developers and say "hey, you're using an 
ancient version of our product, and you're doing it badly; please upgrade, and 
please stop doing {list of stupid things -- ideally tailored}".
