The following are from the released source at

1 Transactions

static class Transaction implements Comparable<Transaction>, Serializable {
	static final long serialVersionUID = 0;
	static final byte TYPE_PAYMENT = 0;
	byte type, subtype;
	int timestamp;
	short deadline;
	byte[] senderPublicKey;
	long recipient;
	int amount, fee;
	long referencedTransaction;
	byte[] signature;
	Attachment attachment;
	int index;
	long block;
	int height;

static class Block implements Serializable {
	static final long serialVersionUID = 0;
	int version;
	int timestamp;
	long previousBlock;
	int numberOfTransactions;
	int totalAmount, totalFee;
	int payloadLength;
	byte[] payloadHash;
	byte[] generatorPublicKey;
	byte[] generationSignature;
	byte[] blockSignature;
