What is devnet-v1.0?

Hi all, I downloaded and installed algorand_beta_linux-amd64_2.0.10.deb (from https://github.com/algorand/go-algorand/releases/tag/v2.0.10-beta) into a clean ubuntu 18.04 vm. The node started on it’s own is pulling blocks from the devnet-v1.0 chain. Does devnet-v1.0 have the new betanet functionality and what is the height of the chain? It’s been going about 16 hours and hasn’t finished syncing.

devnet-1.0 is a network based on nightly builds. It is not recommended for end users as it can contain incomplete features.

You can switch to betanet-1.0 as follows: https://developer.algorand.org/docs/run-a-node/operations/switch_networks.
