Hi Pedro,

I believe currently it is not a big difference whether you test Branch 
4.0 or Master 4.1. The very most bugs you find in 4.1 will also be in 
4.0, and any fix will be done in Master first.

Nevertheless, I recommend to focus un 4.0 branch, especially intensive 
working with the pre releases. Although it's not a big difference, the 
environment with the pre releases is some more realistic and more nearby 
to the versions normal users will use.

Exception: Someone who is active en a muddled bug issue similar to that 
what we had with the new Calc Conditional Formatting design. In this 
case Master testing might be more effective because you will get the 
builds with fixes more early (less reviewing time).

Best regards
