I am only aware of but that's pretty much everything you need. If you intend to use Java APIs, that is pretty much all you need. If you intend to use Python APIs, the Python reference (href'd from the Jython documentation) is pretty much all you need.
Note that I haven't really used Jython too much so there may be some "advanced" topics that aren't discussed sufficiently (or at all) in the docs.

I wrote a book on Jython that covers using Jython to program the Java API.
I love Jython.
What are you using it for?
