What version to use?

Aug 27, 2016 at 4:10 AM
This project looks interesting. Thank you.

I see that there are many choices of versions to use, with 3 of them being possible candidates:
  • Version 1.9.0 - The last Stable version
  • Version - The last Beta version
  • Version 2.0 Alpha 7 - The most recent Alpha version
For many of people, using Alpha software is reserved for test systems, so that doesn't seem like the best choice.

According to the "About this version" section for Beta version, it was only fully tested on a single computer. That doesn't seem ideal. It also has unfixed bugs reported on CodePlex.

The Stable version 1.9.0 seems to have quite a few known bugs, but it has had more thorough testing.

What is recommended for use on a production system?

The 1.9 branches aren't being updated anymore. 2.0 is still in alpha stages, yes. So far, all versions seem to be suffering from a notification spam, that blows up task manager and causes 100% CPU usage. The developers are working hard to fix this issue, but none of them are getting paid, so it may take awhile for them to find a proper fix for it.

Try each of them as they all give different results per user. The notification spam only happens with the "Block and Prompt" setting for outbound connections, but you can always try it with the other settings.
