Subject [jira] [Updated] (FLINK-5575) in old releases, warn users and guide them to the latest stable docs
Date Thu, 19 Jan 2017 15:22:26 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/FLINK-5575?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel
]

David Anderson updated FLINK-5575:
----------------------------------
    Description: 
Old versions of Flink (especially version 0.8) are being frequently studied, downloaded, and
used by new users (because google leads them there). I propose to guide folks to the latest
stable release by adding a link on every documentation page in the old docs that links to
the home page of the latest stable docs. 

The redirect lives at flink.apache.org/q/stable-docs.html, and will need to be modified with
each major release (e.g. when 1.2 is released).

This problem currently affects all releases before 1.1, but the stats show that 0.8, 0.9,
and 1.0 are the most important to deal with.
