As topic says. Updated from Developer Beta 11 straight to GM release from Mac App Store. And about 10 minutes ago, got a notification from Software Update, wanting me to update back to Developer Beta 1 from Early June?

Unless it's Developer Beta 1 for the upcoming 10.14.1 update, but in which case, Apple absolutely does not specify that whatsoever in Software Update.

I'm not part of the developer program, but I got prompted to download Beta 10 after installing Mojave from the App Store.

Actually beta 11 IS the GM. The GM had a slightly lower build number than public release. More details here: https://forums.macrumors.com/threads/beta-11-is-the-gm.2143043/

Anyway the “beta 1” they are refering to now is actually the first beta of 10.14.1.

If you still have your computer configured to receive betas then that is why you will see this update notification - whether you are on the GM - or the public release.

This is just confusing people for no benefit. Apple called 18a389 beta 11, so that's what it is.

Yes. It was indeed confusing. But the reason beta 11 is a GM candidate is because of its abilty to update to point releases. I tested this on one of my macs by skipping the public release and updating beta 11 directly to the first beta of 10.14.1.

No previous beta had that ability. That is what distinguishes beta 11 from all previous betas - and what qualifies beta 11 to GM status.

And THAT is what it is!
