You obviously didn't install the "complete" package of the Roundcube release.

You're right, these documents require some update after the changes
that came with Roundcube 1.1.0.

If your already looked at composer.org, you should also have come
across this page: https://getcomposer.org/download/

Please look into the INSTALL file within the Roundcube 1.1.0 package.
It explains the steps how to install the 3rd party libraries using
composer. I admit that this should be mentioned in the UGRADING
document as well. We'll fix the docs accordingly.

Thanks for reporting!
