APP SDK 2.9 documentation outdated and not available online

I have downloaded the latest SDK installer from http://developer.amd.com/tools-and-sdks/opencl-zone/opencl-tools-sdks/amd-accelerated-parallel-processing-app-sdk/downloads/.  Following a complete installation, I found documentation under "C:\Program Files (x86)\AMD APP SDK\2.9\docs".  However, the included OpenCL programming guide is revision 2.4a dated December 2012.  Where is the latest version?

 

I tried using the link to additional documentation http://developer.amd.com/tools-and-sdks/opencl-zone/opencl-tools-sdks/amd-accelerated-parallel-processing-app-sdk/documentation/ but all of the links on that page redirect one to http://developer.amd.com/tools-and-sdks/opencl-zone/opencl-tools-sdks/amd-accelerated-parallel-processing-app-sdk/.  This means I cannot download updated documentation, or the promised presentations, tutorials or case studies.  This is extremely frustrating as I am setting up a presentation about OpenCL but now I cannot get up-to-date architectural details or a working link to direct audience members to AMD's documentation.

 

This is very unprofessional and makes marketing OpenCL and AMD hardware difficult, if not embarrassing.
