Maybe “you may try” or “you may want to try”?

Before uncommenting this section anyway, I'm wondering whether it
would make sense to add some intermediate headlines between “official
release” (currently beta4) and “current weekly snapshot”, to make it
easier to find out what each image is about.

Then we could add the same kind of section after those two, for
“current daily snapshot”.

Yes, the current situation is awkward/suboptimal, but I have the same
doubts about pushing “other images” to the top. It's been a while
since I scratched the businesscard images section, but I still see no
good solutions.
