No, but you can linke to the "Current development" docs on the same

I fully agree with you on that!

This looks fine; just would you mind avoiding long lines (i.e., lines with
more than 77 or so characters)?  Similarily in case of gcc-3.4/changes.html,
where things might become easier if you reduce the indentation of the HTML

Are the single quotes part of the encoding? If not, I suggest to omit
them or move them outside the <code> environment.
