    When landing on a page in legacy documentation, a banner appears at the top:
    Legacy Documentation: Version x.x (Go to current version)

    The "current version" link doesn't go to the current version, it just dumps me on the front page. I encounter legacy links from Google often enough that this hampers my usage of the docs, which is why I'm here. Running a simple dynamic url generator to swap out the version number is all it would take to correct this unwanted behaviour.

    This is a sample legacy page:
    https://docs.unity3d.com/560/Documentation/Manual/class-Skybox.html

    This is the same page in the current version:
    https://docs.unity3d.com/2019.1/Documentation/Manual/class-Skybox.html

    Hi! Yes! This is a pain to us too. We're researching how to best do it for existing and future pages. I can't give a concise answer as to when. Just... yeah. We know it's bad. And we're annoyed by it as well. Working on it. :)
