The testing builds are snapshots of the current stable release codebase at a specific time. These contain the most recent bugfixes that will be included in the next stable release.

The nightly development builds are snapshots of the development (master branch) codebase at a specific time. This codebase is under active development, and while we try our best, may contain more bugs than usual. New features added to KiCad can be tested in these builds.
