Not really. The plugins GpgOL and GpgEX will only be taken from the latest 
version. Also GnuPG is placed in the PATH environment variable. So there will 
also be the latest one installed preferred.
Also both installations would by default share the same data (home) dir.

What you could do would be to create one version as a portable installation 
with the mkportable tool. 

( See the third bullet point on: https://www.gpg4win.org/download.html )

This would allow you to create a self contained directory with its own home 
directory in which you could launch kleopatra and or GPA (or GnuPG itself) 
without interfering with the rest of your system.

Currently though I would recommend just using the beta. It's pretty far along 
and so far I know of no release blockers, so that beta might become the stable 
version later this week.
