Hi :)
How do new users know what the difference is between the 2 branches?

Clearly it is not so easy for new people to figure it out otherwise we
wouldn't keep on having to answer this same question from so many new

So you answer them and they will know, this is how support works. You'll
always have people who don't know what is ctrl+c for when it exists for
the same functionality in several software over several years. And you
will explain it over and over. Don't think that writing it somewhere
will be enough, that won't be read, we all know it.

As a longer-term users i feel sufficiently experienced to know which branch
i prefer but how is a new user expected to know the difference?

Yes, but you keep thinking on the same model: stable vs unstable when
both are stable :) change your mind by thinking older in time = more
bugfixes, newer in time = more features but more bugs.

Also if we are expecting the new users to do all the bug-finding and
bug-testing for us who are they doing it for?  Who benefits from all the
bug-fixing done by these new users?

Who do you think? :) the users of course, each bug is triaged and will
be fixed one day or another and will find his place in the current
version, and will be backported in the older one still in life if there
is absolutely no risk or it it's a regression.
Kind regards
