Beta versions

Beta versions are released every month, usually accompanied by a Progress Report article. Use the latest beta version if you prefer stability over the newest features in the development versions.

The Windows beta versions require the 64-bit Visual C++ redistributable for Visual Studio 2019 to be installed.

Development versions

Development versions are released every time a developer makes a change to Dolphin, several times every day! Using development versions enables you to use the latest and greatest improvements to the project. They are however less tested than beta versions of the emulator.

The Windows development versions require the 64-bit Visual C++ redistributable for Visual Studio 2019 to be installed.
