What is the difference between MySQL Generally Available release and Development Release? Can a Development Release be used for production database?

This question came from our site for computer enthusiasts and power users.
Stability, amount of testing done, featureset.
With dev release you get new features and new bugs. There is generally less information about problems.
I would never recommend using Dev release for production.
