The Documentation for Azure Information Protection has been updated on the web and the latest content has an August 2017 (or later) date at the top of the article.
Updates this month support the recent service updates, and information about the current preview version of the Azure Information Protection client. With the changes to activation, the default policy and default templates, and setting permissions for protection, the Quick start tutorial has been updated to reflect these changes. Let us know how you get on with the updated instructions! We always listen to your feedback, which is why the documentation updates also include corrections and clarifications for existing features.
