Software as a Service
The Xibo Solution is available from Spring Signage as a low cost “cloud” based service. We recommend this option for anyone who is considering on-line web hosting for Xibo.
Downloading and installing Xibo is easy, although you may want to learn a little bit about what to expect on our “About” page first.
Xibo comes in 2 flavours, the stable release and the development preview.
The stable release is what we recommend for most users, it contains what we consider to be the most stable, bug free code. The development preview release contains all our new work and should be used if you are keen to be on the cutting edge, but can put up with a few bugs!
Both flavours of Xibo come with detailed release notes, showing you how to upgrade, any known issues and links to the documentation.
You can also browse the full documentation.
