I'm not really sure which documentation you are referring to, but
http://www.linuxdoc.org/ generally contains up-to-date documentation for a
large number of things.

Documentation for stuff like 'tar' is also very well maintained, try
'info tar' or 'man tar' at the shell prompt sometime.

Certain Linux *distributions* are very bad about not packaging the latest
documentation available. I won't name them since they are among some of
the most popular.

If you are waiting on a Linux *book* to be up-to-date, you will be waiting
an eternity. By the time material is printed, at least 6 months has passed
since the author wrote it.

If all else fails, Use the source, Luke!
