# Elastic Stack 6.0.0-beta2 released

Editor's Note (September 7, 2018): This post refers to X-Pack. Starting with the 6.3 release, the X-Pack code is now open and fully integrated as features into the Elastic Stack.

6.0.0-beta2 is available today!

Before you get too excited, keep in mind that this is still a beta so dont put it into production. There is no guarantee that any of the 6.0.0-beta versions will be compatible with other pre-releases, or the 6.0.0 GA. We strongly recommend that you keep this far, far away from production. And, since it is an beta, it is not yet available on Elastic Cloud.

During the 5.0 release, we introduced the Elastic Pioneer Program and are continuing the same program with the 6.0 preview releases. Download the preview release, provide feedback, become a Pioneer.
