" Pre-releases

Below, you can download a pre-release of the next version of LibreOffice
for evaluation, QA testing, etc. These versions are not meant for general

It does not say that the currently available build is a BETA

But it says that this is not stable, it is for "testing" and it is NOT "for 
general use". These are most important information here.

If user just want to download app, then he want to know where is stable 
release. Why do you think that TDF should force users to know anything about 
software release process and differences between alpha, beta and release 
candidate builds? As long as these are "not for general use", most people 
don't care.

And people who do care - well, they can get information and links to certain 
builds elsewhere (like TDF wiki).

I don't see a point in cluttering download page with irrelevant information. 
People already have problems with choosing right version and finding download 
link. Creating more complex descriptions won't help them.
