Is 6.0 supposed to be beta?

I am a long-time user of SWP, and have found SWP 5.5 an generally excellent package. I have been trying SWP 6.0 on a Windows 10 system, and am quite frustrated. Are my problems unique to me, or am I doing something wrong?

1. When using the package, I need to save the document every 10 seconds, as it crashes about once a minute. It crashes if I cut and paste math expressions, hit the backspace key, or just randomly.

2. If I hit the backspace key or delete, sometimes entire expressions or paragraphs are deleted, and cannot be recovered by Undo.

3. Typing in 6.0 is frustratingly slow. The delays cause many typing errors.

For now, I will continue to use version 5.5, as it works great and does not have the above problems. It does seem to be a sub-optimal solution.
