OK thanks David, it looks like I may have actually downloaded B5.1, not sure it's hard to tell with them having the same version numbers, or do they? Mine is currently 99.5 at any rate it all looks good I just wanted to check. thx.

The Beta is currently quite stable...we wouldnt’t have released it otherwise.

You can back up APFS->HFS+ if you want (or HFS+ to APFS, etc), but in general it’s best to go same-to-same, for hopefully obvious reasons.

Most of the problems are either we’re-not-done-with-that-yet things, or APFS-or-High-Sierra-is-Broken-and-can’t-do-that stuff. For example, some LaCie d2 Quadra drives (and perhaps others) can’t be ‘blessed’ when connected to FireWire, while they work fine on USB. Also, Apple RAID volumes can’t be blessed if they’re APFS. Both are bugs in ‘bless’ that we’ve investigated pretty thoroughly (I wrote up the issue on the blog).

For the former, things like ‘flashing’ windows when animating, etc...
