User Guide (Documentation)
The TOFFEE-Butterscotch-1.0.11-rpi2-23-nov-2016 release is highly optimized and customized for Raspberry Pi 2/3 hardware platform and it is built within the standard Raspberry Pi Raspbian Jessie with PIXEL Operating System (version: 2016-09-23-raspbian-jessie.img).
Installation: TOFFEE-Butterscotch Raspberry Pi version is a complete disk image of Raspberry Pi Raspbian OS in which TOFFEE-Butterscotch is built and pre-installed. You can download the binary (the install image above), un-tar it and install on a microSD card which is around larger than or equal to 8GB capacity. Since this is the size of the microSD card upon which I built the TOFFEE-Butterscotch image.
You can follow the standard official Raspberry Pi guide for general Raspberry Pi OS image install steps: Installing operating system images
If you are using a Linux system you can do via dd command as shown below. Assume in this case the empty microSD card is "/dev/sdc"
kiran@desktop-i7-5820k:~$ sudo dd bs=4M if=TOFFEE-Butterscotch-1.0.11-rpi2-23-nov-2016.img conv=sync,noerror of=/dev/sdc

TOFFEE-Butterscotch future road-map: This is the first release of TOFFEE-Butterscotch open-source Bandwidth saver software. Currently as one can understand the features supported in the same are quite limited. But in future you should get more and more new features being supported in the same. If you need any specific features, you can post your new feature requests to me, and if they are plausible they should get supported in the same eventually.
Sponsor: If you love TOFFEE-Butterscotch and you want to support the same you can donate/sponsor via Paypal. You can contact me for more details. And if you are sponsoring on behalf of your company, your company details will be listed on the The TOFFEE Project sponsors page.
