SuperSU Full Changelogs On All Versions

supersu zip - SuperUser

SuperSU V2.82 is essentially the stable version of V2.79 SR series, now available on both 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 v2.80 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 may accidentally update their SuperSU to beta version.

For the full changelogs including currently in development ‘service release’ / beta versions and older versions, see Chainfire’s changelog
