Two suggestions

1. Allow users to downgrade to either a different beta release or the previous stable release.

2. Tell users what versions they are on in the Updates page.

Also, there seems to be a bug. Even after updating to the latest version it still says "An updated version of WordPress is available."

Good but unresolved issues

The plugin was very helpful but deactivating it did not stop installing pre-release updates. This issue seems to be quite long time known and a response from the author on the support forum could be helpful.

Works fine, but not perfect
By , for WP 3.5.2

When set to retrieve nightly builds you never know if there is an updated version. It always says it is, but it isn't.

No way to get 3.6-RC when trunk is 3.7-alpha.

Besides this, excellent.

Stays at alpha, misses update to Beta
By ,

The plugin keeps my installation on 3.5.2-alpha and does NOT update to 3.6.2-beta. I can't see any reason to stay on an alpha release when there is a beta release available, especially since the plugin is even named "beta".
Thus, the plugin does not meet its goal to keep your installation at the bleeding edge.
