Your public-facing documentation keeps pace with your releases... which is great - but what about documentation for previous releases? Do you have any kind of 'snapshot' of your documentation per-release?

The concern, is that customers who cannot update their projects in-step with your releases will quickly get out of sync with implementation details.

For reference... I did find documentation on Github.

https://github.com/telerik/kendo-docs

However, I have no way to figure out what Github revision number coincides with your 2013.3.1513 release and the repository doesn't support checking-out by date.

Can you provide me with a Github revision # that coincides with your 2013.3.1513 release of Kendo UI?

Hi Rick,

Your inquiry is a very valid one - in fact, currently we are looking into including a PDF snapshot of the documentation in each release bundle. 

The 2013.3.1513 release is a service pack of Q3, meaning that any commit from December onwards will most likely result in a matching documentation. You can may use this tree (or the respective commit).

The tree you pointed to me to includes components like barcode, editor, etc... which would be far beyond the 2013.3.1513 release. I just want to make sure that we are talking apples / apples.

I think I have this sorted out... as good as it can be - I managed to get the current documentation generator working with older content.

Will you be branching your releases in the future?

Hi Rick,

Thank you for your feedback, Indeed, we should start adding tags to the documentation repository, like we do the main source code one.
