There are some text files in doc which are mostly design, not usage.
And the barest start at a manual, really just a copy of the beginning
chapters of the woody manual. So, the quick answer is no.

There are some links listed in the recent archives for places to get a
daily build version for i386, which is the only arch available, and
other websites with helpful hints. It's really not in beta yet, maybe
getting close.

I suspect it would not be a 'quick' try since you aren't familiar
with it and no docs yet :(
