9.30 Alpha is the most recent / recommended for Windows 8 at the moment. Works well.

stable enough, 7-zip's alphas aren't really even what you'd usually consider alpha quality as they're pretty good at keeping things stable before the release the build

all alpha really means for 7-zip usually is they're testing out some new features or moved some things around. but like i said they usually are good about it being stable before releasing it. so take it how you want it

Using 9.20 on W8x64, no issues whatsoever.
