This preview version is a "rolling" release so it will require direct internet access to download the latest patches.
You can install and use the preview version in parallel to the release version, in this case:
- For Windows, make sure to use the Portable bundle. The installer won't work for such a setup.
- The preview version (except of the portable Windows bundle) will initially copy the settings from the release version, but writes them to its own settings directory. This means that settings of both versions will diverge.
