Enable Beta versions

If you want to use the very latest features and improvements for DRE, subscribing to Beta updates is the way to go.

  • Beta versions are not available in case the Stable releases are equal to or exceed the current Beta version. In that case, you will simply receive the latest stable version in case you are not already using this.
  • Beta versions contain the very latest additions and changes to DRE and will thus be prone to more issues.
  • Use at your own risk

Enable Beta versions from Updates tab


How to enable beta versions:

  1. Open DRE
  2. Click Settings in the side menu
  3. Click the Updates tab
  4. Locate the Release Channel dropdown
  5. Select Beta from the drop-down
  6. Locate and enable Check On Startup to be sure to subscribe to new updates
  7. Enable Download Updates Automatically so they are downloaded and ready for installation

If a newer Beta version is available you should now get a popup prompting you to download the latest Beta version. If nothing happens, you can try to restart DRE or click the Check For Updates to trigger a check with the database.
