Comment (by afragen):

 @dd32  if you’re interested you can help beta test The branch of the Beta
 Tester plugin that has this feature.

 The idea is that you can switch back and forth between getting updates
 from point, bleeding edge, and beta/RC for whichever stream you are
 currently on. Obviously there’s a lot we have to do to furnish the beta/RC
 download and having it as an offer on the API would make this more
 consistent and simpler.

 It’s very simple to switch between the nightlies and the beta/RC. If
 you’re on the beta/RC when a new zip is created an update will show.

 Ping either @pbiron or me on Slack and we can give you more details.

 I don’t disagree that sometimes the nightlies are a better experience but
 many devs only are only testing against a beta or the RC. Hopefully this
 is a simpler way for that to happen.
