Retrieve BETA Updates when checking for updates
I usually run the latest version of the beta and it would be nice if "Check for Updates" would pick up the latest version version of SQL Prompt, including any beta versions.
Perhaps this could be an option for those that aren't interested in participating in betas.
We’ve just released a new beta of Prompt which will stay on the beta check for updates channel after installing a stable build. It also has a button in the top right of the update dialog to toggle showing beta updates. You can download this new build from https://forums.red-gate.com/viewtopic.php?f=169&t=78627
It should depend solely on the currently installed build. So if you installed a beta, a stable and then a beta you'll get notified of new beta builds since the last one installed was a beta.
Installing a stable after that would mean you'll only get notified of stable releases.

Perhaps this scenario isn't a concern, and if not, you can ignore. If I install a beta and then a stable version comes out, which I install, then a new beta, would I see the option to install the latest beta?
If not, then maybe we always need to be able to see Beta updates regardless of which version we are on. Maybe the user could choose whether or not they were alerted.
