You can see the option "Beta Updates" in many Emsisoft programs at the update settings.  If this option is selected, you will get the latest beta files downloaded and installed on your PC instead of the regular tested and usually fully functional updates.

Beta updates contain the latest developments before they are released as stable for all users. These updates have not been tested thoroughly and may contain bugs. Therefore we don't recommend to use beta updates on production systems.

You can switch between beta and stable updates whenever you want. When the next online update occurs, all files that are different will be downloaded and replaced. From the following screen you can see where you can select beta updates. Beta updates are disabled by default. 

Once you switched to "Beta" feed you will receive following message, click on "Yes" button to proceed.
