Ha ha! I sense some exaggeration. Play a game of hunt for the change bar on the side of the page? I don't expect latest versions to have changed a huge amount. 

I am a fan of the PDF manuals. I do look up online doco from IBM, but normally only when I don't know which PDF manual to look in or where to find the info in the PDF manual. Online doco typically requires navigating around the hierarchy of topics, with many pages having very little info other than pointers to sub topics, that typically makes it less appealing to me.

For me, a new copy of the SQL manual is always the first one I look at. Hash Spaces deprecated is slightly sad. I was keen to use it despite the unique key restriction. Not clear to me yet if V12 Fast Transfer Blocks can perform close to as good as hash lookup, although the gain is more widespread.

Changes to the Utilities manual should be much more minor, as example.
