Yeah, it's similar to the original one - in fact you get the same email which is confusing as it asks for all your documents again!!! I've confirmed they don't need them though. You can then check your application the same way. Mine has taken a week from arriving at ACS to getting to my CO - i assume it's because it had to go via the payment processing people.
Interestingly - the password to check the application is the same as my last one - wonder if we all have the same password :)
