Well said.

I almost never use any pre-Stable version for deployment, but I almost 
always do my daily development in the most recent test build.

This means my customers get the most solid software I can help deliver: 
  they get the final build of a version, and long before it's final I've 
had months to work with my code in it, able to find any issues that may 
come up long before it goes final so my customers don't have to see them.
