No auto-update.
It the GUI auto-update would install a "2.2.3 (xxx) HIGHLY EXPERIMENTAL pfSense 2.2.3 developers tree" then all hell would break lose.
Its, as said https://snapshots.pfsense.org/ experimental for 'experts-only'  ;)

Use one of the two Update Files sets to update your working 2.2.2 version to an experimental 2.2.3 version.

No auto-update URL for this round of snapshots. It would use the same URL as pre-2.2-RELEASE did, which we redirected to the stable updates so those using pre-2.2.0 snapshots would get the official release. If this were going to be a longer-term development cycle, we'd do something to accommodate that. This time around, you can use the manual update.

Can someone build a current 32-bit set of snapshots?

32-bit builder seems to have taken the weekend off.

Seems it took a long weekend, I guess Monday must have been a public holiday in 32-bit land? ;)

Just read through the release notes, and realized the file system stuff, in particular bug #4523.
This just sounds like what I was bitten by, and which necessitated my unit to be shipped half-way across the country, with corresponding downtime and costs...

So, since I'm about to set up that unit again, before I ship it out, it would seem to be a good idea to upgrade to 2.2.3 while I'm at it, such that this particular thing won't bite me anytime soon.

However we have this:

Quote
It the GUI auto-update would install a "2.2.3 (xxx) HIGHLY EXPERIMENTAL pfSense 2.2.3 developers tree" then all hell would break lose.

but when I follow the link to the updater/install images, what I see is:
Quote
2.2.3 (amd64)
HIGHLY EXPERIMENTAL pfSense 2.2.3 developers tree
which sounds pretty similar.

So what are the files I should use to prevent "all hell" from breaking lose, if I want to install a system from scratch and or update an existing one?
Or does only auto-update cause "hell to break lose", and manual updates are all fine and dandy?

No auto-update URL for this round of snapshots
You have to get the update or full image from http://snapshots.pfsense.org/
and install from System->Firmware, Manual Update.

I believe the quality of 2.2.3-DEVELOPMENT is good. There is a list of things fixed since 2.2.2 was released: https://doc.pfsense.org/index.php?title=2.2.3_New_Features_and_Changes

And I am not aware of any regressions from 2.2.2

I am running 2.2.3-DEVELOPMENT at home and at 2 offices that have new SG-2440 systems with dual-WAN failover-load-balancing, OpenVPN site-2-site servers, DynDNS, limiters...

What to say - the day before a DEVELOPMENT or BETA version of anything is officially called RELEASE actually the DEVELOPMENT/BETA version was fine. Personally I would install 2.2.3-DEVELOPMENT on any new system to start out with a new office having the least bugs possible.

At this point snapshots should be really safe, we should be days away from release.
