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 stable versions of the emulator.

The development versions require the 64-bit Visual C++ redistributable for Visual Studio 2017 to be installed.
