Something else that sneaked into the Codeplex release is the new documentation, which you can find under the documentation - readiness package directory as shown below. This is still early days and we are still aligning ourselves with the platform, but it will give you a feel of the readiness package that we are planning to include with the product.

 Copy the entire Readiness Package directory to your cave, then click on Index.htm.

Remember that the product is still a BETA and even though we are aligning the product and the documentation, there are still some discrepancies lurking around.
