 It is possible to interact with a Bespin instance on a page, to alter contents
 for example.
 When using manual upgrade of an element, the `useBespin()` function returns a
 bespin object which can be manipulated as follows:
     var bespin = embed.useBespin("edit");
-    bespin.setContent("Initial Content\nWith 2 lines");
+    bespin.value = "Initial Content\nWith 2 lines";
 When using element upgrading (with the `class="bespin"` attribute), you don't
 instantly have access to the Bespin Component. Fortunately, you can get access
 to it fairly easily:
     <div id="edit" class="bespin">Initial contents</div>
     var bespin = document.getElementById("edit").bespin;
-    bespin.setContent("Hello, World!");
+    bespin.value = "Hello, World!";
 The DOM node that contains the editor gets a "bespin" property on it with
 the embedded editor convenience API.

 Known Issues
 Bespin Embedded 0.6 is *alpha* software. It is still under active development
 and APIs are subject to change. Note also that 0.6 features a complete retooling
 of the editor component, so it is likely that there will be some new bugs
 in the editor.

+Known Issues
+Bespin Embedded 0.6.1 is *alpha* software. It is still under active development
+and APIs are subject to change. Note also that 0.6 featured a complete retooling
+of the editor component, so it is likely that there will be some bugs
+in the editor that still need squashing.
+* Command line completion is not yet implemented. (bug 539446)
+* Text selection in fields *other than* the Bespin editor on the page (in an
+  embedded use) does not work (bug 540081)
+* The Embedded editor remains larger than we'd like, but shrinking
+  it down is low priority at the moment.
+* The cursor doesn't blink (bug 540112)
+* There is no CSS syntax highlighting yet (bug 547272)
+* Syntax highlighting is back!
+    * The new highlighting engine can properly handle a language embedded
+      in another (such as JavaScript or CSS in HTML)
+    * Highlighters are now created in a largely declarative way, as a set of
+      regular expressions that are run in a state machine. There is documentation
+      to help write syntax highlighters in the Plugin Guide.
+Bug Fixes
+* Clicking on the "down" scrollbar handle should no longer crash your browser
+  (bug 541938) 
+* There was some overly aggressive CSS leaking out of the page (bugs
+  546413 and 547106)
