The danger with specifying 1.1 versions is that one is released every
two weeks. It can quickly become obsolete, and in a few months (or
years) time users may get confused as to why they can't find the exact
version you specify any more.

This would only be practical for an electronic, online manual which
you would update after rigorous testing of each new release.
