The Documentation for Azure Rights Management has been updated on the web and the latest content has a June 2016 (or later) date at the top of the article.

Thank you for all your feedback and support for our new documentation site, docs.microsoft.com. It’s great to see localized documentation on there now, with additional languages coming soon. In case you haven’t spotted it, you can easily change your language selection by using the drop down on the right top of the page.

Remember, if you have feedback about the site design, use the Site Feedback page. But if you have feedback about the information in the documentation, rather than how it is presented, continue to send that feedback to us so that we can incorporate it for doc updates: AskIPTeam@Microsoft.com. We value customer feedback and try to incorporate it when possible.
