Online documentation should be relevant for latest release and contain more useful details

What is your industry? Non-Industry Specific
How will this idea be used?

Online documentation is not always in sync with newer releases nor does it contain details on changes. It is imperative that the online documentation provides our customers/users with details on how to deploy PEM and what changes are made with each release which is once in 120 days. For example, when was released, there was a mention of changes in MountFiles and the user was asked to download the latest and deploy it. The documentation was silent on exactly what those changes were. PEM users will appreciate knowing what changes are to be made and how many of the existing configuration parameters will be affected.
