I have always assumed that the daily builds of RStudio are for people who feel that they have more-or-less mastered the current stable version and wish to beta-test new features. That is not me, for the most part. I am not an especially hot programmer, and I have enough trouble keeping up with breaking changes in the tidyverse.
However, there is one feature in the daily builds that i want very badly: rainbow parenthesis matching. I have two questions about this.
First, am I being over-cautious about the daily builds? In particular, can I assume that if I am not trying to use new features introduced in the daily builds, I probably will not have any problems in moving from the stable version to the daily build version?
Second, and especially if the answer to the last question is yes, is there any way to turn on or install rainbow parenthesis matching in the stable version ? The instructions for turning on rainbow parentheses that I found say to check the box under Tools > Global Options > Code > Display, but there is no such box in the current stable build. I am hoping it has moved, or is a little more hidden, or otherwise available if I take the right steps. Is there such a way?
