    You can not install DP2 directly as Apple will not provide it. You can only install DP1 and update to DP2.

    Hopefully DP2 in a few hours time. There's so many bugs on the current DP1 that even Mavericks DP1 feels more stable and superior than this El Crap...

    My bet for DP2:

    Tuesday, June 23rd 10am PDT

    You can quote me on that. I think it's a safe enough assumption at this point.

    Yosemite developer previews always came out on a Monday or Tuesday at 10am Pacific, spread apart by exactly 2 weeks. It was like clockwork. Since 10am has already came and gone today, it'll be tomorrow.

    Pretty solid and stable for a first beta. Sorry you're having issues, but the consensus is that El Capitan is one of the better OS X releases, even if beta. If you're having issues, wait for the final version.

    This "BETA 1" build has been pretty darn good. Surprisingly so! Hoping "BETA 2" comes soon!

    It's a solid beta - runs well, but chews battery. At least on my 12" rMB. I look forward to the next beta.

    Enough with the bickering on calling DP1 a beta, developer beta etc.

    Check your console to see what's leaking. A few people were seeing a lot of iCloud issues and that was burning the battery life as it kept pushing the network. Once they've deleted the account and re-enable it, the battery life stabilized.

    No battery issues here so far but I did a clean install and didn't get any iCloud issues.

    It's even available to those of us who got it without a developer account (torrent for me).
    I was expecting to have to download the update separately, but the update showed up in App Store.

    Thanks. Spent some time pouring over activity monitor and console a while back, didn't see any iCloud issues are an obvious culprit.

    I've decided to quote myself. In all fairness, it was an easy guess though.
