The AUCTeX manual says that "this file documents AUCTeX version 11.55.".
My XEmacs package index shows 
 AUCTeX          1.46   1.46   Basic TeX/LaTeX support.

and the variable 
`AUCTeX-version' is a variable declared in Lisp.
  -- loaded from "tex"

Value: "CVS-1.13"

I was confused about my AUCTeX version number, and thats why I suggested for
an "About" menu option which shows up to date value of this information. The
manual may still belong to an older version. 

Generally for many program, there is a separation of manual and the installed
program; what I mean is that the installed program may be much newer version
but the manual might be a very old version.

Also, if there is a change of mailing list address and other addresses the
about box being internal to the program may indicate that but, the manual
being an older version may not show the changed information.

Anyway, it was just a suggestion.
