Baiscly the team have rebuilt a large amount of the Suite working on fixes and changes that are work items.
Now they have an Alpha version (Technical Preview) of what will be the second major release of the suite.
So really its the first functioning version of an updated project that is being released as a Preview of what they have, Technical because they probably want feedback on its code design, bugs and usability more than how it looks (colours etc).
Why is it classed as Un-Stable? Because the code all though tested during development would seem ok it may still fail depending on its use and unforeseen conflicts etc etc
Are there any known bugs? Again its a Technical Preview. First Release. That is the point :-) (in other words no but there could be many)
What does that mean for you to use it? Simply it would not be recommended to use it in production but now try it out and find any problems then open a Work Item or just wanna talk about it then Discuss it.
