Proceed carefully and at your own risk. This is a release candidate, which means it’s generally stable but not without issues. It’s likely close to its final form, but expect changes.
I wouldn’t install this on your primary imaging rig unless you’re confident you can dig yourself out of any hole you get yourself into.
That being said, it’s definitely fun and exciting to test out new stuff like this.
No idea on how it will handle profiles from previous versions. I would expect to see that the data structures storing profile metadata have changed and would also expect to have to re-enter everything for this new version. There may be a migration process, but don’t count on that.
We have a week of rain coming, so I’ll have some time to tinker next week.
