Thanks for pointing that out. You are absolutely right.

The current solution needs some refining. One reason for that being
that I (mea culpa) suggested very last minute to show other versions
under docs (to be more consistant), when I discovered that we only had
one tab with versioned docs left. So there wasn't very much time left
for thinking it through.

Sorry about that.

However: I think there are several possible and easy to do refinements
to this and we merely need to choose the one we prefer:

1. Rename the main tab 'Docs' or 'Versioned Docs'
2. Move the current version (0.7) into a subtab just like all the
   other versions and make that subtab the default selection when
   selecting the main tab.


1. Step back to the solution we had before. Move the other versions
   into a separate main tab 'Other Versions'.

Some feedback on this would be nice.
