Thank you Luigi and Markus!
I know, I have been too lazy to upgrade to 2016 — but to my defense, even the website says that TeXlive 2016 will have 0.85.
Also, I have been using TeXlive for several years and it’s the first time I hear about texdoc! However it seems broken in my distribution (MacTeX, which is based on TeXlive):

% texdoc luatex
Sorry, no documentation found for luatex.
If you are unsure about the name, try searching CTAN's TeX catalogue at

Of course, when I search in CTAN, I find the doc for 0.95 (this I still know how to do). Does texdoc usually manage to locate the version corresponding to your installed package?

Since people tend to be pretty slow on updating their TeX distros (most TeX packages have not updated for years), how about extending the <ul> on the website with links to manuals of some key versions from the past? I am willing to write a script that pulls links from tags on https://foundry.supelec.fr <https://foundry.supelec.fr/>.
