General Updates

Manual Migration - In Progress

We are currently in the process of migrating our manual documentation from https://manual.threefold.io to the brand new https://manual.grid.tf. As a result, we kindly request that you refer to the new manual for accessing the latest and most up-to-date content of the ThreeFold Manual.

The reason of this migration is mainly due to the change of archiving system for the manual, we are using mdBook for the manual, a n open-source utility to create modern online books from Markdown files.

We have decided to maintain the old manual as an archive. This means that, even after the migration is done, you will still be able to access the previous version for reference and retrieval of older documentation.

Now Added: Mermaid Functionalities

We have now added Mermaid functionalities to the ThreeFold Manual. Mermaid is a powerful and intuitive tool that allows you to create various types of diagrams, including flowcharts, sequences, and more, directly within the manual by using markdown codes. To learn how to use Mermaid effectively, you can refer to the official documentation at https://mermaid.js.org/.
