    Hello,

    Could you elaborate a little more on the term "technical reviews" in this particular instance? For instance, are you referring to a specific level of testing?

    Thank you.

    I could be using the wrong term... easy apache 4 is Technical Review or beta or something like that. I want to make sure the updates I get are only stable production releases. So if I mark Stable would I have not gotten easy apache 4 installed?

    Hello,

    EasyApache 4 is no longer considered a "Technical Preview" in cPanel 58, and is used by default on new installations:

    Big Changes in cPanel & WHM version 58 | cPanel Blog

    Previously, you would have still needed to manually enable EasyApache 4, even on new installations, per the following document:

    How to Install or Uninstall EasyApache 4 - EasyApache 4 - cPanel Documentation

    Thank you.

    My real question is around release strategy. EA4 was an example... If I choose STABLE and not current, release or edge. Will I not get beta type code? I want to decrease the issues that new unproven code brings.

    Hello,

    "Edge" is the only build tier with rudimentary testing. The build tier differences are listed on the document you referenced in the original post:

    cPanel and WHM Versions and Release Process

    You can use the "Stable" build tier if you prefer to use a version with considerable public exposure, testing, and verification. Note that EasyApache 4 was always opt-in while in the "Technical Preview" state.

    Thank you.
