    @uce Some old releases still have strong google power -- especially 0.8. I don't know
if replacing those pages with a redirect will cause the page rank to plummet or not.

> 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 affects all releases before 1.1, but the stats show that 0.8, 0.9, 0.10,
and 1.0 are the most important to deal with.
