Panel versions: Stable or Beta

ISPsystem products have two release versions: Beta and Stable. The version defines how much updates and how often you will get them.

Beta and Stable-versions are located in the repositories with different names. Therefore, during the installation process you need to enter the repository address with a required version name: beta or stable.

What version to install?

We recommend that you install a Stable version. With this version you get the full testing and this version the best to avoid crashes and other issues. You need to update it only once a month.

The Beta-version has new or improved features that you can use right after they are added.

Can I change the version?

You can switch between versions by changing the repository name. You can change Stable into Beta any time. To change Beta to Stable, wait until the Stable version is updated to the version corresponding to Beta. E.g., current Beta is 5.113.1, Stable is 5.109.1. You can change the repository from Beta to Stable immediately, but your panel will be updated only when Stable 5.113.1 or later is released. Downgrade is not supported.
