It's important that we provide stability and equally important that we continue to innovate. To facilitate this, ShiftEdit now has two different release channels available: dev and stable.
Everyone starts off on stable which is essentially just that; stable. No new features and the occasional bugfix until the latest dev build is mature enough.
Dev channel should be pretty stable most of the time. It will be updated more often than stable and will contain bleeding edge features that may come and go depending on their success.
You can switch between channels at any time from your account area.
