In http://guide.couchdb.org/draft/tour.html#welcome, there's a section about running the test suite in Futon.
In my version of Futon, however, I have this as my sidebar:
I think it's fairly obvious that the Diagnostics -> Verify Installation is the substitute, but it might be useful to update the guide to reflect that :-)
Also, when creating a new document in Futon, it would be helpful to explicitly remind the user to click "Save Document" - otherwise they might sit there thinking, "hey, where's the _rev key?" :)
Thanks so much for all the work you're doing!!!
