It's a good start!  I like the left-hand navigation bar and the 
segmentation of links based on audience (curious visitors, 
administrators, developers, etc.).  Besides plunking in some content, 
which really helps test a design for practicality, I have a few suggestions:

1. left-align the links in the navigation bar; it makes them much easier 
to read;
2. left-align the logo, or place it in top of the navigation bar 
(perhaps easier with the bug on the website beta);
3. replace the drab grey background on the left-hand navigation bar with 
another color that matches the blue links better;
4. consider using a horizontal navigation bar along the top of the 
screen in addition to the vertical one down the left-hand side of the 
screen for important links (like "Download") or links to major sections 
of the site (like Documentation).
