    Which version of WHM are you all using? I am currently always selecting the STABLE package, but is it safe(r) to use the RELEASE package instead?

    Don't forget the BETA tree :)

    I use EDGE and have done for quite some time now.

    In reply to your question 'myweb':

    STABLE is generally considered to be used by very conservative people - I would say RELEASE is stable enough to be run on production servers, and IIRC, it is also the default selection on new cPanel installations.

    RELEASE also has bug fixes and some new features which aren't yet in STABLE.

    Thanks NT, this is exactly why I thought that the RELEASE version might sometimes be more secure(safe) than the STABLE version, because it includes the latest security fixes?

    Hi,

    I think if there were any security issues, cPanel would include them in all builds.

    The main difference between the two is that RELEASE has recent bug fixes and features compared to STABLE, which is often the last build to be updated.

    Regards,
    Nick

    Ive been using RELEASE for some time now but always noticed that if release has version Rx, stable has version Rx+1, like currently there is 10.8.2-RELEASE_119 and 10.8.2-STABLE_120 so I guess there is no big difference between Release and Stable.
