According to the docs one should use main to reference the main page if the tree view is enabled.
This was the case till v1.7.4, but starting with v1.7.5.1 I had to change "/ref main" to "/ref index" even with "GENERATE_TREEVIEW = YES".

Must the docs be corrected or is this a bug?

quote from /mainpage topic:

You can refer to the main page using \ref index (if the treeview is disabled, otherwise you should use \ref main).

Personally I think it would be better to have only one way to reference the main page, so in any case one would need to use "/ref index", which seems to be the case now.

Thanks in advance,
