thanks a lot Andy, Dan

I think I am looking at too many documents at once at any given time
had not seen the link to the new version, I knew it had to be somewhere

I am finding it really difficult to find the uptodate docs on the site, is 
there a way of flagging the
outdated stuff more prominently (put them in a liked category superseded_by 
comes to mind) or somethign

cheers

PDM
