Giocoso Version 3 - User Manual

These links take you to the various sections of the Giocoso User Manual. If you are new to Giocoso, I'd strongly advise reading the whole lot in sequence; if you are in a hurry, at least read Section 4 (installing the program on various operating systems/distros) and Sections 5-9 (where each of the program menus is explained in some detail).

Users familiar with earlier versions of Giocoso should at least read Section 2, which describes what's new in this version compared to earlier versions. Section 3 is also pretty essential for such users: it explains how Version 3 migrates a Version 2 database during the installation process and what might go wrong in that process, together with workarounds.
