cPanel maintains three production builds and
one beta experimental build. Below is a breakdown of the EDGE, CURRENT,
STABLE, RELEASE, and STABLE builds.
EDGE -- Edge is the bleeding edge tree. While it has the newest
features; It has undergone the least amount of testing (if any). You
generally shouldn't run this build unless you need a bug fix or feature
in it. Once an equivalent CURRENT or RELEASE build has been released,
you should switch away from this.
CURRENT -- Current builds are more mature than the EDGE builds since they have been tested in a production environment.
RELEASE -- Release builds are the preferred builds to run. They are
generally current enough to have the latest bugfixes and new features,
but without the worry of new bugs being introduced.
STABLE -- Stable builds are for the conservative people who do not wish to run the latest release.
