Are they beta versions of the scanner ? Do they offer any benefit compared to standard release ? Are they stable enough to be used permanently ?

ESET pre-release updates are individual program modules intended to introduce new functionality or fix known issues...they are tested before releasing to the public.

Basic

By default, the Update type is set to Regular update to ensure that update files will automatically be download from the ESET server with the least network traffic. Pre-release updates (the Pre-release update option) are updates that have gone through thorough internal testing and will be available to the general public soon. You can benefit from enabling pre-release updates by having access to the most recent detection methods and fixes. However, pre-release updates might not be stable enough at all times and SHOULD NOT be used on production servers and workstations where maximum availability and stability is required.

ESET Update Settings

These are ESET Knowledgebase Articles about pre-releases.

Enable pre-release updates in my ESET Windows home product

* ESET technical support has advised you to enable pre-release updates to resolve an issue with your product
* Switch back to a regular update

Enable pre-release updates in ESET Smart Security Business Edition or ESET NOD32 Antivirus Business Edition

ESET recommends that you only enable pre-release updates in situations when a pre-release update will resolve an issue you are having with your ESET product. Once you have received the update that resolves your issue, we recommend that you revert back to regular updates.
