Thanks, they look really useful!

I don't think that waiting for the next release is a good idea. I was at Sean Moss-Pulz' talk in Bern on April 2.
In the Q&A, somebody said that his Freerunner missed incoming calls. Sean M-P replied that this would be
fixed really soon. I asked, "When?" and Sean said, "June".

The thought of new users struggling with the old docs, which are mostly no longer relevant, for the next
2 months is awful, don't you think? But maybe adding a pointer to Tom Yates' pages will do for now.
