You do not need to do a demo download to get the latest version. The links on the demo download page point to exactly the same links as those above.
If a fix was put in a version (such as 18.104.22.168) and then a new release became available (22.214.171.124), th the new version would contain all of version 126.96.36.199 fixes as well as any new fixes for version 188.8.131.52.
A typical release cycle is 1-2 weeks for a version that is posted as beta to become an official release.
These releases are FULL copies of Windward Software. The license key is the only thing that determines which functionality is enabled.
