Is the documentation for the menu package available on-line ?

Say, I have a menu item called "Netscape Navigator 3.0"
in the system-wide file provided by my administrator.
Now it should be possible to rename it to "Netscape" (in the menu)
but still work when the name of the binary changes
for some reason (e.g. due to a previous spelling
error).  Furthermore, what if I had decided to hide
the item altogether end then my admin installs
"Netscape Navigator 4.0" for this architecture at last ?

Is there a list of chnages for the next version of
the menu system ?
