[NTG-context] latest beta and \seeindex

I should add too that in this particular volume our contributors sometimes
mention different terms for the same thing as in “This is called p or q”.
Indexing both terms (p and q) separately and the adding  x-ref is one way
to go but indexing the more commonly used term and adding a mere x-ref for
the other is more efficient.
