Documentation was overhauled & refreshed in early 2017:

IIAB/XSCE 6.2 code is here, which represents a very major step forward since v6.1:

Background: We began working around a regular 6-month release cycle starting with XSCE 6.0 (released March 27, 2016) leading up to XSCE 6.1 (released September 22, 2016). While we missed the 6-month target this time, this was a result of a major refactoring, bringing us forward from CentOS exclusivity, embracing Raspbian for RPi, while also adding the similar Debian for larger PC's.

Do join our weekly "Thursday" calls, helping collaboratively push forward what's coming next!
