When we start working on a big update for the PowerPack Addon for Beaver Builder, we make sure that there are a couple of beta versions available before the stable version goes live. These beta versions are packed with new features and functionalities, and if you wish to use the beta version and give your feedback, you can do that too until the stable version is ready.
We highly recommend you to use and test the beta version in a test environment only. Do not use the beta version on a live site as it allows you to try the features and functionalities of the upcoming versions without any fear of bugs and breaking your live website.
There will be multiple minor updates for the beta versions until we are 100% sure about releasing the final version.
Things to keep in mind before using the beta version –
Beta versions are released a month or weeks before the final release. We make sure that the beta version made available is well tested, but still, there might be some bugs here and there that you might find. We would love to hear from you about these bugs.
When the beta version is in the process, there is a freeze on the code. This means that only the current recorded bugs and errors will be fixed. Other than this, any request for a new feature will be considered only in the next major update.
Where to find the Beta version?
You can download the beta version of the plugin from the My Accounts page. Under downloads, you will be able to find the beta version of the plugin.
How to Install a Beta Version?
To install a beta version, follow the steps given below –
Step 1: If you have the PowerPack plugin installed on your test website, deactivate and install it
Step 2: Download the beta version from the My Account page.
