That is exactly why alpha and beta versions should be isolated from the "public" update system until they are at RC stage. As willing volunteers' date=' the people running alpha and beta version are [b']expecting to find faults, that is why "we" run them. Not everyone uses beta because they want to test things. Some of us just use it because because the beta fixes a bug in the stable release. In my case, I'm actually running it to see if it fixes the RSS magnet link bug, where new magnet links would show up in the list but never download. (The release notes seemed promising on this front.) But, if it does, I'm going to have to keep on using the beta version until they fix it in the stable version. If it doesn't, I'll have to figure out another client. If it were up to me, I would never take on another update, and would automatically downgrade to the stable version once it has this bug fixed. Alphas may be for testing only, but betas are used for a mixture of purposes.
