Improved User Manual

- Posted on 16/11/2013

The Xibo Digital Signage solution has grown massively over the last 3 years – unfortunately the documentation has not followed suit… until now! We have begun work on consolidating all Xibo related material into one easily accessible manual.

The first revision of the Xibo for Android manual is already available here. The rest of the open source solution will follow when we release 1.6.0.

We hope you find the new documentation useful – if you have any feedback for items we could improve, please let us know.
