+1 to an overview page at /docs. I also like Will's suggestion to use a 
more verbose page for the then lost URIs under /docs/* instead of just 
simply auto-redirecting to the new location under /docs-1.3/. This 
should also help Google, I think...

Reaching the 1.3 docs when going to /docs bugged me for quite some time 
now but to be honest, I didn't dare to ask for opinions ;)
