Why would you update form beta and not from the release? Betas are
exactly what they say, betas. And are not as stable as the releases. You
are inviting unnecessary trouble by installing and updating a beta version.

Now, if you wrote beta but are actually following the release, then it
is different than what you wrote.

The usual method is to start with the release. This way you would have
fewer updates to do. Not to mention the fact that the release is
considered more stable than beta, hence saving you from potential problems.
