Installing a developer release is no different than installing the stable Hotspots Releases. So, the information in the above chapters about installing Hotspots still apply here. The only difference is that you'll need to navigate to the Developer downloads area in order to get the Hotspots releases. Hotspots Core and Hotspots PRO both have a sub section there.
Please note: Having a backup is never a bad idea!
In normall cases you won't have to install developer releases. However there are situations where things are not working - if we confirm the problem, we fix it and generally release a developer release to test the fix. We proceed the same way with new features - we add them and create a dev release for those of you who like to experiment with them before the official release gets published.
