I visited the Win PT link from site. This link has the following 

1.  - Windows

2. - graphicall installer which
seems to have additional stuff + WinPt, but an older version of WinPT

3. and other links ...

Now my question 

- which is the most stable release of WinPT (pl. note I am a newbie) ?

- Is it preferable I have the latest release (i.e.) with all loophole
plugged or
have the latest stable version which might be something else
