This is really popular way to deal with development features, In fact most other companies does this. They often release to development branch. The users can either use the stable version and only update when there is another major/security update. The curious users can use development version and use the latest features.

  • Ubuntu has two release channels, well, normal users know of it as LTS and non-LTS. LTS is well tested, non-LTS is not.
  • Chrome has canary and dev channel.

The list can go on. This is least stressful way to deal with releases.
