It's very confusing for http://llvm.org/docs/tutorial/LangImpl4.html to show "Last modified: $Date: 2007-10-17 11:05:13 -0700 (Wed, 17 Oct 2007) $" at the bottom, as if nothing had changed since then, when the code it displays is actually less than a week old... I guess the source code snippets are updated automagically. As a result, the code shown there as an example will NOT compile on anything but a most recent LLVM, i.e. it will not work if you install LLVM with apt-get or MacPorts. I don't think that's desirable.

Yep. I just added a warning like this to
http://llvm.org/docs/ReleaseNotes.html, but we should have one on the
top-level documentation. And quite possibly, the main website link
should be to the most recent release's documentation rather than to
trunk's documentation. I'll write a patch for the first problem.
Someone with cvs access will need to fix the website.
