initial version

If the version is in a state, that system integration is tested (mostly "RC" and first release of a new branch), then you should not use it for productive tasks, but only in a test environment. Such versions will replace your existing version. For productive tasks you should wait at least for the first bug fix release, that is version 5.0.1, and even then you need to be very careful about backups. If you have got a test environment, then of cause install it and use it heavily. The sooner bugs are found the better.

If you like to discover new features, and if it does not matter, when it crashes or must be uninstalled because of severe errors, and if you have time to work on non-productive documents, then you can use a developer version (currently 5.1). It installs itself besides a regular version. Test it and report the bugs you find.
