Preview Installers

The version numbers on preview installers will usually be the same as the currently released version. The version number is not updated until just before release.

If you're not sure whether you need the 64-bit or 32-bit version then always choose the 32-bit version. The 64-bit versions may have reduced functionality when compared to the 32-bit version.
