    the link redirects to the app store and at the moment is showing no updates available, for me at least.

    EDIT it shows in the 'purchased' tab, not the 'updates' tab.

    So what does this mean? - Would this show as 'purchased' once the official release date has passed?

    I always do a clean install on new OS systems. Deciding whether to do it now or after the official release, even though I guess the software will be the same...

    You can waste your time now, or you can waste your time then. The end result will be the same.

    I cannot answer, all I know is that the GM is downloaded through the MAS.

    Developers need to log in to their developer account and accept the new t&c's. Click download on the GM seed page and it will open the MAS and redeem a new code.

    I'm doing a clean install now - GM is pretty much the real deal and I probably won't do another clean install for the 'official release'

    I'm not seeing anything yet. The Dev site just says 'Coming Soon' and the App Store doesn't show anything.

    The GM seed is never a delta update. You have to download the entire installer.

    I guess they've pulled it. BTW, downloaded filename is 'Install OS X El Capitan Developer Beta.app,' it shouldn't have beta for a GM right?

    I meant of the downloaded file, not the number listed on the dev site. The dev betas all required you to download the first beta then incrementally upgrade.

    I had the same, downloaded when it was available and it still said it was a dev beta. It appears they pulled it and will be available later. Just annoying :mad:.

    Did anybody install from the downloaded installer file? I'm not sure it is the GM seed, it seems like it is the beta 1 file.

    I will install the file I downloaded and check the build number for anyone interested. Looks like they posted the wrong file indeed.

    EDIT: Install would not progress past verification. Looks like I'm waiting.

    Looks like it.

    I'm still downloading the file but it's gone from less than an hour to between 5 and 8 hours.
