is it possible to change the readme.txt of a plugin that is hosted at without tagging a new version?

I would like to show the new readme.txt.

I have added a link to the plugin documentation but I do not want to force the users of updating their version because of this change.

Yes, just change the readme in the tagged directory that is marked as stable.

    Hey, great. I thought that every update would also be a new available update for the users. I just gave it a try with a screenshot. Hope that works out. Edit: Yes, it works. Thanks a lot for the heads up! – kaiser Nov 18 '11 at 2:53

Afaik: No. We're all suffering from the plugin repo limitations...

Edit: This answer is plain wrong.
