Confused documentation under versionless URL

If I search for my gem kitchen-terraform, I see the result in the screen shot attached. My assumption is that result is indicating that version 2.1.0 (the latest) is the default version that will be displayed at the URL Loading that URL displays the README from 2.1.0 as expected, but the objects linked in the sidebar seem to be a mishmash of outdated and deleted objects. For example: Kitchen::Driver::Terraform points to, which displays the object from version 1.0.1 rather than 2.1.0; Kitchen::Driver::Terraform::VerifyClientVersion points to which is a broken link as the object was removed in version 2.0.0.

So far, this documentation has been automatically generated when my gem was uploaded to Have I messed up some YARD configuration option or should I just always use the versioned gem URL like

    Looks like this is all set now. Might've been a temporary caching issue. Let me know if you believe otherwise. Thanks!

    @nap: thank you for your reply.

    The issue does appear to be resolved now, but the gem was last updated on October 11 and I noticed this issue as early as September 20 so I do not think the issue was temporary in nature. Is there any behaviour on the site that would account for such a delay in refreshing the docs?

    Caching issues is usually the reason for these types of problems. We tend to cache fairly aggressively and sometimes we do not correctly purge all documents when a new gem is released (possibly because the initial invalidation fails).

    Sorry about the delay in responding to this issue. If you see this thing happen again please open an issue and we will try to resolve it ASAP!
