I can't answer your questions, but I'm looking for the same info too.
Hopefully someone will point us in the right direction.

> I see a brief mention of registering settings on

> use them, etc.
> There is also nothing in

> http://codex.wordpress.org/Adding_Administration_Menus currently about
> registering options.
> So could someone who knows what is going on either (a) update those pages

> to update them? or (c) (preferable) both explain here what we need to do to
> keep our plugins working and update the codex pages?
