-		Zero2Bundle
-		Create self-contained app bundles from Zero Install
-		by Thomas Leonard
+			AddApp
+			Get ROX apps through Zero Install
+			by Thomas Leonard
 
 
 BRIEF
 
-Zero2Bundle takes a Zero Install feed and creates a self-contained ROX
-application directory containing that program AND any libraries it requires.
-This may be useful if you want to use the resulting bundle on a machine with
-no Internet connection.
-
-Note: normally, you would use AddApp rather than Zero2Bundle. AddApp creates
-small launchers, which will download the application if required and store it
-in the cache. AddApp launchers will automatically check for updates, run the
-correct binary for different platforms, and share libraries. Zero2Bundle, by
-contrast, copies the program and all required libraries into the created
-directory.
-
+The Zero Install Injector is an easy way to get new applications. AddApp is a
+ROX-style front-end to the injector allowing you to get applications in the
+form of ROX application directories.

 LIMITATIONS

+This is an early preview release. There are some known problems:
 
-- Open the application directory (Shift+Click in ROX-Filer).
+- The app menu only contains 'Versions...'. It should also list the

-- Delete the sub-directory corresponding to the dependency you don't want.
