Does anyone know the major differences between the Nginx Development and Stable editions? I know that there is a risk of bugs etc. in development. But I was more concerned with performance/features.

I'm not a big nginx pro, but in my experience development version is usable enough(no chashes so far) and it also had a fixed bug with 201 response code while the stable one hang when i was trying to give 201 from the backend server. In this particular situation dev version was helpful. Anyway, potential risk of bugs I think is a serious reason to go and stick with stable version, even if it might be less performant.
