This may be an obvious question. Yet, after much searching, I have yet to find a discussion of this topic. So, this simple topic may be of great help to many others.
I am currently using version 2.78. I would like to go to 2.80. It has a lot of interesting new features, like filmic render But, it appears that it is still in beta. I am a hobbiest who goes for photorealism in still scenes. I have yet to mess with animation. I only upgrade every second or third version, as the small changes from version to version are often not worth the installation hassle.
From the discussions, one would get the impression that 2.80 has already been released in the full version. I was honestly surprised to read that it was still in beta. Not being a developer, is it worth it for me to try the 2.80 beta? Or, should I just wait for the release of the full version? It’s supposedly only a few months away. But, they have been saying that for a year now.
