I didnt find any email from you on the list. This is your first one.

You're right, the howto is really outdated, the developers know about
this issue.

The most important new features are about the thinpools, which include
snap of snaps. There you find the best information in the new manpages.
You should take at least 2.02.97 or git. You have to enable
thinpool-features explicitly with ./configure --with-thin=internal! Dont
forget to install the thin-provisioning-tools, too!  I dont know why
these arent part of the LVM2-sources, but you will need them.

Feel free to ask, but at the best explizit on your concrete problems.
Additionally you can ask on IRC on freenode at the #lvm channel
