Environment Information

Joomla! version
PHP version
Akeeba Backup version

On installing Pro, it says:

Welcome to Akeeba!
Before doing anything more, please read the manual, available on-line on our official site's Documentation section.

... but the link ...

... is broken. And I can't find any documentation anywhere which is 3.x Pro specific, just the old JP 2.x stuff.

Not a huge deal, just doesn't impart that warm and fuzzy feeling I was looking for by paying for the Pro product.

The 3.0 documentation is in process, but isn't available yet. Much of the 2.0 documentation is useful in dealing with 3.0, right now support has to fill in the gaps.

You are welcome to try out the Akeeba Core version for free, you can upgrade when the documentation is complete. :D

No problem, like I said, no big deal. I was more than happy to pay the Pro fee, I've been using JoomlaPack for free for several years, it's a great product, has saved my butt on several occasions. I'm half of the dev / support team for Fabrik, and we aren't exactly known for getting our documentation out on time. ;)

I am currently writing the documentation. It's a bit tough trying to rewrite a 100 pages document, improve the code and run support at the same time, but I somehow manage to do all of this :D The first draft of the documentation will be most probably made available next week.
