Switching to Release Channel

You should not regularly play on the canary release channel

Unless you are using Canary for development, then you will want to switch back to the Release channel.

Ensure You Are Not Using Canary #

Description: Using the canary version for regular play can cause unexpected crashes on servers.

If you are experiencing irregular, unexplained crashes without any modification to your client files, or server files — then you may have the Canary version selected.
