I don't recall seeing an explanation of the notation identifying 

Read here hoping for some insight to the meaning of "alpha" and "beta".

Will hypothesize that, for 2.3.6, "beta" was meant to indicate that it 
was tested more than 2.3.7.  For 2.3.7, "alpha" was meant to indicate 
that it was tested less than 2.3.6.

Release numbers x.y.z are a mystery.  Ideas?

The release number is now in the headings here. Tips for further 
clarification welcome.

Thx,                                ... P.L.
