[tor-talk] does it make sense to change channels from alpha to beta on MS-Windows 10 platform ?



Dear all,

I was looking at How to install 64-bit Tor Browser on Windows 10 .

I went to https://www.torproject.org/projects/torbrowser.html.en and
downloaded the alpha build which was released with 64-bit richness
there i.e. 7.5.a9

I then went into C:\Users\generation2\Desktop\Tor
Browser\Browser\defaults\pref\channel-prefs after closing down the
browser where I changed from alpha to beta channel.

Now does it make sense to do that change as I haven't seen beta
releases at least on
https://www.torproject.org/projects/torbrowser.html.en

I even went to the github mirror to see if more than one branch was
active only to see that it just says master/head which probably are
updates to the alpha build.

I do know that tbb is a derivative of the mozilla Firefox product and
can be seen there are number of channels and releases that one can run
though

https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/channel/desktop/

I am somewhat confused as I couldn't find any info. about it either in
documentation or in the wiki as to how things happen.

https://www.torproject.org/docs/documentation.html.en

https://trac.torproject.org/projects/tor/wiki/WikiStart

Any hint/guide/tip would be welcome.
