Git repo version of documentation doesn't match online version

The online version of documentation for TTFont.new (http://docs.giderosmobile.com/reference/gideros/TTFont/new) is showing different information than what is in the git repository for the latest release (https://github.com/gideros/gideros/blob/master/doc/reference/gideros/TTFont/new.html)
The online version reads

"Description:
Creates a new TTFont object.
Starting from gideros 2017.9, 'text' optional parameter ..."

Syntax:
The git repo version reads

"Description:
Creates a new TTFont object. "
Syntax:
Why are they different? Am I using the correct git repo?
And if this is different, what else is different?

    as far as I know, wiki docs will become primary:

    Yes, that is the plan - I for one am only updating what in the Wiki from now on and I think everyone else is doing the same. It would be great though if we could have more people helping update things as (same as everyone else) Gideros is only something I can do in spare time.

  • Thanks for the replies. I am returning to Gideros after years of being inactive. I was hoping to update one of my applications and found that enough underlying items have changed that the application crashes. The TTFont.new is an example, where it has changed the signature. I am trying to figure out how to find all the functions that have changed since version 2016.04 and thought to grep through the documentation looking for "Starting from gideros 2017.9 ..." type text.
    I'll probably have to just click on all the online documentation.
  • If the wiki now contains everything that the old documentation does.. but has more relevant information also, then is it not logical to now change the current website to point to the wiki docs instead of the now outdated ones?
  • @chipster123 For the most part most (all?) of the API commands should be compatible with what they were before - any improvements maintained compatibility as far as I recall.
