Django version 4.2 beta 1 for LTS or stick to 4.1 ?

Is it safe to start a new project on Django 4.2 beta 1 considering final launch is only in June ?
I am considering it only because its LTS.

Personal opinion:
I would stay on 4.1, and when the 4.2 officially comes out i would wait a week or two. And just bump the version of django on my code and run the test suite to see if there’s any broken tests, if there’s a few or none tests that failed then i will upgrade to 4.2. Otherwise i will stick with 4.1.
