Good point, and I agree 100%. I will make sure we add a note to the
release notes that documentation has been removed because it is
severely outdated. I will point them to the wiki page, updated with
dolby's changes, and suggest saving or printing or something if they
need offline docs - does this sound good?

Though, if I grabbed dolby's changes right now, and removed the
beginners guide, will that put us in a better state?
