Since a beta release has not been fully tested for bugs, it comes with a warning that anyone who downloads and uses it is doing so at his or her own risk. When testing the newest beta release of a program that already exists on the computer, some testers opt to load the beta release into its own folder. If the beta release causes problems and needs to be uninstalled, it won’t harm the preexisting program.
The disadvantage to testing a beta release this way is that the user’s personal configuration or files from the full release are not carried over into the install of the beta release. If the beta release has a rollback option built into the install process, this should suffice, though backing up important files is always recommended.
The beta release falls somewhere along the home stretch of the software development cycle. First comes the pre-alpha stage, involving actual feature development and overall coding. Once the software is compiled and ready for in-house testing it’s in the alpha stage. Only after in-house testing is complete, does the software move into the beta release stage; eventually reaching the third and final stage of becoming a stable release.
