What is a beta release?

A beta release is usually the final test version of a piece of software before the next official version is released. This means that bugs may still exist even though the software has been tested internally.

But that's exactly why beta releases occur, so that external users like yourself can test the software and give us valuable feedback.

If you'd rather wait for the next official release, though, that's ok too. The latest official, non-beta version is always available on our download page.
