Same month? GCG comes with the source code for the documentation, so you can
update any part of the manual and print a new copy whenever you like. Very
useful when you are modifying the programs, or when you want to make a copy to
print locally. The date, of course, is just when the postscript was generated -
it doesn't necessarily mean the text was updated.
