Kicad Version Naming


#1

Hi, what is the difference between https://kicad-downloads.s3.cern.ch/index.html?prefix=windows/testing/5.1/ and https://kicad-downloads.s3.cern.ch/index.html?prefix=windows/nightly/ ?

First contains 5.1 branch builds. I.e. what will become next 5.1.x release. Second contains dev builds, i.e. what will become v6 release.
5.1 is stable. Dev builds are much more volatile in terms of features and bugs.

Thanks. Makes it a bit clearer.
