I'm with Richard on this one. I have stacks I wont risk with anything other
than GM versions of LC. Those stacks I am willing to risk I simply
duplicate then start them up with an RC or DP version.

The problem I have is I occasionally accidentally start the wrong version
so I'm constantly needing to visit the About LiveCode to confirm which
version is open - because I can't read the splash screen fast enough or I
forgot to look at it properly.

Maybe a simpler solution and one that seems to already be partially in
place is just to change the colour of the splash screen (and Dock icon on
Mac). I believe it is blue for Commercial and Green for Community. Maybe
they could just include Orange for Release Candidate and Red for Developer
Preview. That way there'd be another clue (warning) that you are opening a
DP version of LC when you really meant to be opening a GM version.
