As far as I can tell, Benny doesn’t use the beta release channel much these days. The latest beta release is r5673 — same as the latest normal release.

Realistically the only way to go for Big Sur users is to use r5757 or later. IMO once you find a test build that works for you, you should stick with it unless it starts to misbehave. Otherwise you risk upgrading to something that breaks a feature you use (e.g. the Cmd-F window-resize regression around r5820).

Benny does seem to be updating the version of MailMate in the MailMateBigSur.tbz download. As of this writing, it’s r5818. When it was first posted, it was r5757. I’m not sure if Benny intends MailMateBigSur.tbz to contain the latest test build, or if he’s selecting only certain builds that are perhaps more stable than the very latest test build.

IIUC, Benny assures us that once he’s done with the big message view rewrite there will be a normal release that works on Big Sur and things will settle down somewhat.

Hope this helps,
