Using HP Betas

I'm just a little puzzled about using the Beta option in the Steam Library.

If I select the, say, 0.8.8 version and finish the download, will Steam ever try to do an automatic update to the latest release and overwrite 0.8.8? If so, how can I inhibit the automatic update?

I've established a method to keep more than version on my machine but I think I'm exposed to an overwrite from an automatic update.

Thanks.

No, once you opt into a beta it will not try to update to any other version. Only selecting "None" in the betas menu will allow for automatic/"forced" updates of the game client.

Many thanks, Erasmus. That'll make things much easier.
