Joris-Jan van 't Land:
The default version will get updated only after we put it through internal QA (it's still an Alpha, but we'd like to make sure those updates at least allow you to start the game ). The Development branch will soon become a frequently updated branch by all of our developers: programmers, encoders, artists, designers and more. This may cause it to not work one day and work very well the next, it may contain experimental features, a sneak peak at new content, etc. If you do not want to bother with the risk of a more broken version, you're advised to stick with the default. The Alpha Hub will become the source of updates and hopefully changelogs. I believe the first publications to this branch are coming up later today.
