Gallery help site needs new capability

The documentation site need a menu or link item to quickly switch versions of a help topic. Like the old MSDN site.

Example Site topic: https://msdn.microsoft.com/powershell/reference/5.1/Microsoft.PowerShell.Utility/Read-Host

The version access is important for support issues to be able to quickly switch versions as the "-online" with help always targets the current version or nothing.

        Both would be useful although, for me, the version switch would be most useful.

        Ideally the XML help should support all versions with filtering by current or switching to view other versions even in the offline help.

        That is a big order but it should be on the planning table. Why carry around multiple files when one would do.
