      Description

      It would be good to generate a summary page for recent new API, perhaps filtered according to values of `@since`.

      Generating the page should be relatively easy. Deciding on the contents may beholder. First, note that the value `@since` has no defined semantics: we use a simple version number; other people might use a longer dotted number, others might use a date.

      One possible would be a command line option to give a list or regex for the values of `@since` to be included on the page. We might still have trouble (for JDK) deciding between "new since last release" and "new since last LTS release".

      A very different solution would be a different doclet (or a variant of the current doclet!) that *just* produces an API page that links into the main docs.
