The reference page is as you say, just being excessively up to Date.
Streaming via http will work fine with version 5.4 of Slimserver and
with Squeezebox 1.

The device currently only has drivers for Microsoft Windows, so it will
need to be connected via usb to a Windows PC on your network but it can
stream via http to a Linux or OS X computer running SlimServer.

Please note that DABBar is needed for the http streaming support and
whilst it is freely available, we do not ship with it.
