Anyone from the kotlin documentation team? It is worthwhile for the users if you maintain separate documentation for 1.4.x and 1.3.x.

@corneil Hi! Could you please clarify your use case – why you need to use Kotlin 1.3.x instead of Kotlin 1.4.x? Each Kotlin release brings many features and improvements. Kotlin 1.4.0 provided so many features and we would like our users to benefit from them.

If someone relatively new to Kotlin is working on a codebase that is using 1.3 and they search for information about something they encounter they might run into problems with 1.4 documentation. If there is a selection on the documentation site that allows the user to choose a Release or primary release when view documentation it will help a lot. The documentation should also be clear to which version it applies.

Thank you for a quick reply. I see your point. Officially we promote only the latest Kotlin version, which is specified in the Kotlin header on our web site. That’s why we have documentation only for this version. Could you please create a feature request in our issue tracker? We, as the Kotlin team, can decide to maintain and support several Kotlin versions in the future and we will need documentation for different versions as well. Your request would be very helpful in this case. However, we recommend that you update to the latest version and get most of Kotlin! Here you can find a list of Kotlin releases.
