On the new download pages, I just noticed that the dev versions are referenced like this:

GRASS GIS 7.9 devel (unstable)

This implies that GRASS 7.9 is risky and perhaps minimally useable. The reality is that it works very well but has some new features that might be buggy or might change. While we want to indicate these differences from the current stable version, we don’t want to discourage people from trying it (and reporting any issues).

I suggest that we reference it as

GRASS GIS 7.9 devel (development)


GRASS GIS 7.9 devel (preview)
