Warning: the manual is far from being complete yet!

The software is divided into two different modes, a script-based console version, and a GUI version. The manual is thus often split into two parts that address each of those. The sections related to the console version, however, contain more technical information than GUI sections and should be read first as a reference.

The manual is available as a PDF file, or as its TeX sources bundled together with Aether's sources.
