SuperSU v2.79 Stable Released from Stable version of SuperSU v2.78 SR5 - SuperSU V2.79 is essentially the stable version of V2.78 SR5, now available on both XDA and Google Play Store. For the past few months, Chainfire and the team have decided to rename the beta versions as service release (SR). Thus the next beta version is expected to be named as v2.79 SR1.

The reason for this change is partly due to a significant number of websites outside of XDA update their SuperSU when an elevation of version number takes place ( such as 2.76 to 2.77 beta), but they do not label out the beta. Thus the conventional beta release will be assumed as stable version release in many places other than of XDA. Users who only wish for stable versions (or too shy to test their phones with betas) may accidentally update their SuperSU to beta version.
