XBMC Online Manual
|XBMC Online Manual|
The XBMC Online Manual is composed solely of contributions by the members of the XBMC community, and so remains incomplete. This manual may document functionality that appears only in the XBMC SVN, and not yet in point releases. If your version seems to be missing a feature, check the full changelog to see whether the feature is newer than the build of XBMC that you are currently running. Note that as of April 3, 2011, the current build of XBMC is version 10.1 (Dharma).
XBMC always has been and always will be a community effort, and so with its documentation. Created to consolidate vast amounts of information accrued over the years, this manual was created and is updated through the perspiration of many. Feel free to contribute in any way that you can. If something's missing, add it. If something's jacked up, fix it.
