As already mentioned by Christian, despite the website saying "Beta of
POV-Ray 3.7" it'll actually take you to a POV-Ray 3.7 release candidate,
which is what we recommend nowadays.
While "Beta", as Darren mentions, essentially means a version intended
for public testing to hunt down bugs expected to still be there,
"Release candidate" means to say a version intended for public testing
to verify that we addressed all the bugs, i.e. we don't expect to find
any additional bugs.
As a beginner, you should indeed head straight for version 3.7, to get
acquainted with what is currently the latest and the greatest right from
