    Hi, i'm new to centminmod, I need some help in deciding which version to install on my new server. From the readings, there is not much differences between stable and the beta version, except beta has a lot more features, most of which I have never heard before.

    Here are some basic information:
    1. server is 1GB Linode.
    2. The website is a WordPress website with only image content.
    3. I plan to user Rocket Loader, instead of Super Cache.
    4. I will be using image optimize plugins.
    5. I plan to use cloudflare and free SSL from let's encrypt

    Based on the above, can anyone tell me if I should install the stable or the beta version. An explanation will be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks you all.

    Use the latest beta. It's basically stable but the documents haven't been written up for it, which is causing the delay in EVA officially labeling it as a stable release. You'll have a lot more problems with the labelled stable release.
