The primary risk with developing only against unreleased source of
your dependencies, when your users expect to deploy your releases
with released dependencies, is that you can end up accidentally
releasing something which only works with unreleased and potentially
unsupported states of its dependencies. You do still need some means
of confirming your releases can work when used strictly with
released versions of its dependencies, so as to prevent this.
Testing against released dependencies instead side-steps this
problem, but at the loss of easy testing against upcoming dependency
