Alpha versions of DRE is your answer. Here’s how you can test the additions fresh from the oven 👇

Settings -> Updates
- DRE will now download the latest Alpha version, if available
- Install the Alpha version, and you’re off!
What are Alpha versions?
- Like a Rough Sketch: An alpha version is an early version of software, kind of like a rough draft or a sketch. It’s not complete and often has bugs or missing features.
- For Testing: It’s mainly for testing and getting feedback to improve the software.
Stable Releases, as a comparison, are:
- Finished Product: A stable release is like the final, polished version of a software. It’s more reliable and has all the intended features.
- Ready for Everyone: This version is good to go for all users, not just testers.
Note! Alpha versions are unstable and may break, and even crash DRE. If you don’t want unstable releases, stay on the
Stable release channels instead
