Beta or Production?

I want to check out xlights versus LOR PE. I am just starting out with either program. The general consensus is xlights is the best program. So my question is should I start with the latest version, BETA, or the last production which was released in November?

It matters what you're programming.  For me, I used LOR in the beginning.  When I was using strictly LOR product.  However, when I switched to RGB LEDs, then it was easier to use xLights.  Over the past major revisions of xLights.  It has become a lot easier to program.

I guess I should have given more details. I have a mixed display of RGB and LED lights and I was hoping to be able to do some effects in xlights and also still be able to do some SE sequencing. PE doesn't allow any back and forth and seems cumbersome, but that is a preliminary assessment. I just didn't know what release to even start with. The latest or the production?

Start with the latest version if there are bugs in it they'll get fixed in a few weeks.
The "production" version had a few bugs anyway IIRC

I suggest people to always use the latest. there have been almost 400 items released since the "Production" release. until you com einto November/december , always use the latest xlights code.
