This chapter contains a description of various issues related to installation and setup of the Arriba development tool.
Arriba is delivered as an executable, self-installing image, or as an Eclipse plugin. The Arriba package also contains example pre-built project source code that should serve as a good starting point for new Arriba users.
The release notes associated with each new Arriba release can be found in the file readme.txt. Please review this file to see what has changed between successive Arriba releases.
