Problems with lists and content types

I have been playing with what is possible with Orchard and I have been unable to use the lists. I found that you need to add the containable part to the type so it can be listed. I was following this documentation and it is showing an option for a contains dropdown when creating a list. I have been unable to get this to come up. I'm sure it is something simple, could someone point me in the correct directions?

What parts are on your type?

I included all the parts that the documentation said, Body,Comments,Common,Containable,Route,Tags. I think that is what it said.

Are you using a build later than 1.0? There is a bug that was fixed by [changeset:4496] that prevented the part from showing in the edit screen of containable parts.

Make sure your list is not set as the home page, known bug!

Please note that the documentation on the Creating Lists topic ( is updated for the 1.1 release, and is currently working in the build as of rev. # 4663 (dev).

If you are running on a recent build including 4663, and still having issues running this tutorial, please send a repro or refer to the specific part of the tutorial where things aren't working as expected.

I am currently on version 1.0.20 , I can't seem to find where to get version 1.1. If you could point me in the correct location for that i'll give it a shot.

It's not out. It will be around April 12.

More recent drops can only be obtained by getting a source enlistment or from the source code tab.
