Eirikr70 No worries :) The way they do releases is a little confusing at first but they have good reason for it. Essentially they run an automated test suite which indicated that the release was good to go, hence the announcement. Then testers in the Alpha channel actually install the release and make sure the test suite didn't miss anything. Usually nothing is found, and the same release is quickly passed through beta and then stable. Unlike other projects which maintain multiple targets, there is no difference between an Alpha, beta and stable builds. Rarely, if a bug is uncovered a release never moves into stable. However, they aren't designed as a testing build vs a stable one. There is one build that they hope to be stable but need to rigorously test first before asserting that to be true. In the case of a major release like this I always advise to wait for stable, and in general that is good practice.
