Changelog

Release Types


Alpha

  • For advanced users only.
  • Installed manually.
  • The most recent updates.
  • Active participation in the development of the program
  • Experimental features

The most unstable version of the application. At any moment, it can close, break down and stop working in any other way. But it has the freshest updates. If you are not afraid of problems with use, want to see the latest updates and want to help in the development of the project – install it.

Beta

  • Preferred for advanced users
  • Updated automatically, but for now also on beta
  • Updates less frequently than in alpha

Polished alpha. More stable, more reliable. But still preferable for advanced users.
If you want to help the project but are not ready to deal with serious bugs, install it.

At the moment, STN is constantly in a Beta state. And it will be until the developer adds the minimum required functionality.

So far, it is the Beta version that comes with auto-updates.

Stable

  • Suitable for any user.
  • Updates automatically (you need to confirm the installation)
  • Minimum problems with the use
  • Updates are not so often

Stable, user-tested version. The chance that it will stop working, reset, or do something unexpected is close to 0.

ATTENTION: If you encounter any bugs or errors, please report them to the Official Group under the #bug tag
