Article 1 based on the latest:
http://www.nasaspaceflight.com/2015/07/spacex-falcon-9-failure-investigation-focuses-update/

(Next article will be about Dragon).

And here's Part 2 (typically I had not see transcripts. That was a lot of finger typing then ;D )

Amazing work by Nathan again with the renders. No, the nose cap was still on during CRS-7's event, but the lead render is about what would happen...(she would pop the nose cone and get ready for chutes).

Moving into RTF soon, so we'll be moving into new threads.

Is there a cargo manifest available for CRS-7?  Previous SpaceX flights have published them but all I've seen is the very high level 2 sentence mention in the press kit

http://www.spacex.com/sites/spacex/files/spacex_nasa_crs-7_presskit.pdf

Not all that detailed, but it is broken down a little:
http://www.nasa.gov/sites/default/files/atoms/files/spacex_crs7_mission_overview.pdf

Have not seen any published with a further breakdown by weight or categories (though SpaceX/NASA must have them for internal use), but Spaceflight101 have at least compiled more information about payloads including the spacesuit, dove-cubesats and more: http://www.spaceflight101.com/dragon-spx-7-cargo-overview.html

Also worth mentioning that some of the cargo were re-flights of things lost in the other recent launch failures, like for example some of the student experiments, a set of multi-filtration beds, some of the crew supplies etc. (Some crew supplies are specific to the individual astronauts, like for example crew-choice food, crew-selected/sized clothing, etc).

Here is a more detailed list of cargo lost on Spx-7.
