Dear Moti — There is no installer per se.  The file to which one is taken (if one selects the most recent, which is unfortunately right at the bottom of the list) is https://dl.bintray.com/texworks/Windows-latest/:TeXworks-win-0.7-201903050630-git_d26c46b.zip, a "zip" file that simply needs to be unpacked and the contents used.  As I am a TeX Live user, and the supplied TeXworks is physically orders of magnitude smaller than the one in the zip file, I assumed that the former was tightly integrated into the TeX Live environment and therefore "installed" (in reality, simply unpacked) the zip file into a different location.  In my case the TeX Live original was at X:\TeX\Live\2018\Bin\Win32, so I unpacked the zip file into X:\TeX\Works (which did not previously exist) and used it from there.  If the beta-test version is to become your preferred TeXworks program, you will need to associate it with TeX files, replacing your earlier one in the associations list.

Hi Stefan,
The link takes me to a jfrog page (whatever that is!), but I don't see a Windows installer. Do I have to build from the source? I'm not really up to that ...
