Hi AG :)
It is a good idea to run the 3.6.0 beta in parallel with your existing version.
There is no need to wipe one in order to run the other. However stable something is on other people's machines (or unstable for that matter) is irrelevant. What matters is how stable it is on YOUR machine and that is something no-one knows until YOU try it.
One advantage with test-driving the early pre-releases of a branch is that IF you have problems then it's easy to catch the devs interest in fixing it while they are keen and excited about the new branch. Waiting until everyone else is using it means the devs attention is more divided between everyone else's issues.
Typically a new branch means a big step up to a new plateaux of increased compatibility with MS formats, faster start-up and operation, very much increased functionality and a slightly sexier look&feel.
I would definitely recommend taking the 3.6.0 beta out for a test-drive as much as possible asap but keep your older version lurking in the back-ground somewhere jic. Why wait for other people?
Good luck and regards from

Actually over all it seems rather stable - I've run into rough spots
with one extension is all.
As for the video being 'so yesterday' - seems 3.5 RC1 is out and ready -
from the announcement a few minutes ago:
"Please be aware that LibreOffice 3.6.0 RC1 is not ready for
production use, you should continue to use LibreOffice 3.5.5 for that.
The release is available for Windows, Linux and Mac OS X from our QA
builds download page at
The (still growing) list of features for the upcoming 3.6.0 is on our
wiki - please help filling gaps there, e.g. by providing more
so - I haven't tired that RC with my problematic extension, it is still
only a 'candidate'.
