The manual is up-to-date (sections about HTML and ODT export may lag
a bit behind), but the URL isn't. In particular, see:

AFAIK, :options is specific to latex back-end. Common attributes are set
the usual way, i.e. with ":attribute value" syntax. Though it's
impossible to recognize them all. So :options is handy to add raw

Anyway, all attributes should be documented in the manual.
