Nice phrasing. Most people say: "debug and release mode", but there are no such "modes", they are just "Configurations" and can be different. Perhaps you should have added, that Release and Debug are arbitrary names; the developer can add any other configurations under any names. Anyway, my 5.

Yes, you are right they are just names, cheers :)

Use the folder that works, until you read about building in different configurations.
