Hello, Been away from this forum for awhile, but I still use ST's for all my post processing. Question: I'm still running Version 1.4.296, which I see is a year old or so. Works OK on my Windows 8.1 16RAM 1 year old computer. I'm just wondering if I should update ST's. It says that an older version than mine is Stable, but it also says to update. Is there any advantage for me to update? I would like to have what's most powerful. But what is said in the Download section is confusing.

Hi,

1.4 is still in alpha, meaning that features will change and/or may not work as expected between versions. Once we arrive at 'beta' the feature set is locked down and only bugs are fixed. 'Release Candidate' stage, finally tries to establish a version that can be designated stable.

If you're curious about what has changed between versions and whether it is worth updating, have a look at the CHANGELOG file of one of the latest downloads.

Hope this helps,
