Does anyone remember what was for Yosemite previously the DP release dates?

Mainly I would like to know what to expect as time differences between releases.

Thanks!

Lol, in my mind Yosemite DP2 was released after a month DP1 was.

Yosemite had the same as iOS 8, so if they have the same this year, I think we can expect the DP2 30th June. Since this is the date for Apple Music and iOS 8.4

I am not sure about DP2, but when the Public Beta is released I expect Mailapp, Safari and other core app issues should have been fixed.

Not sure why people are providing such varied responses such as new DP every 3 weeks or 1 month. Just look at last year for a reference. With Yosemite, it was very clearly every 2 weeks. Here's a refresher:

Yosemite:

Developer Previews
DP1 6/2/2014
DP2 6/17/2014
DP3 7/7/2014
DP4 7/21/2014
DP5 8/4/2014
DP6 8/18/2014
DP7 9/2/2014
DP8 9/15/2014

Public Betas / Golden Masters
PB1 6/24/2014
PB2 8/21/2014
PB3 9/15/2014
PB4 9/30/2014 (GM1)
PB5 10/8/2014 (GM2)
PB6 10/13/2014 (GM3)

Final shipping version of Yosemite was released on 10/16/2014 and was basically the PB6 / GM3 release.

Almost all DP releases were very consistently released every 2 weeks on a Monday or Tuesday. If Apple uses a similar schedule, El Capitan DP2 should be out on June 21st or 22nd.

Yeah, and Apple was even following this tradition with OS X 10.10.4 and iOS 8.4 up until a few weeks ago. I figure iOS 9 and El Cap will see their first updates either the 21st or the 22nd. Can't wait to see the fixes!

all the dev are at WWDC, so at least a week or so after that.

when you leave the public beta will be able to upgrade to it, while using the DP1?
You should be able to install newer developer previews over older public betas and likewise newer public betas over newer developer previews. That's what I did last year. So long as you're upgrading to a newer build each time, there's no real harm.

I think it was every three week, correct me if I am wrong!
OS X Yosemite Developer Preview 1: June 2
OS X Yosemite Developer Preview 2: June 17
OS X Yosemite Developer Preview 3: July 7
OS X Yosemite Developer Preview 4: July 21
OS X Yosemite Developer Preview 5: August 4
OS X Yosemite Developer Preview 6: August 18
OS X Yosemite Developer Preview 7: September 2
OS X Yosemite Developer Preview 8: September 15
OS X Yosemite Golder Master: September 30
~
OS X Yosemite General Availability: October 16

So with the exception of DP2 to DP3 they were on a two-week interval.
