The Documentation for Azure Information Protection been updated on the web and the latest content has an April 2019 (or later) date at the top of the article.

 

It's been a very eventful month as April saw the general availability releases of both the Azure Information Protection client, and the Azure Information Protection unified labeling client. We realize having two clients, having to choose between them, and finding the right documentation for each makes things a bit challenging. So as well as new documentation for the unified labeling client (a new user guide and admin guide), we've added a new FAQ to explain how they are different, in addition to the existing documentation that helps you choose between them. Then, for documentation that applies to just one of the clients, we've add into the header at the top of the page "Instructions for:" and the name of the client, with a link back to the FAQ.

 

We've had a lot of feedback about the unified labeling client for this first GA release - head over to our Yammer site to join in the discussions.

 

We listen to your feedback and try to incorporate it whenever possible. Let me know if you have feedback about the technical documentation for Azure Information Protection!
