Unfortunately BitBucket does not currently provide easy browsing of past versions of documentation currently, while the above links will take you to the previous versions of the documentation as soon as you navigate on from there you will be viewing the latest documentation again. Generally speaking there should be minimal differences between versions and you can always at ?rev=0.9.0 to the current URL to view the specific version of that page.

Please note there may be a small window after a new release while we update our documentation when some pages may be inaccurate, if you find any inaccuracies please Contact Us so we can resolve them ASAP.

API Documentation

We also provide MSDN style API documentation generated from the XML comments in the code (which means our code has full Intellisense support) by going to the Formal API page.
