Registered developers can opt-in to the beta through the Software Update section of the System Settings app. Under Beta updates, toggle on the Sonoma Developer Beta. Note that an Apple ID associated with an Apple Developer account is required to get the beta.

There is no word on what's new in the ‌macOS Sonoma‌ 14.2 beta, but we'll update this article when we find out what's been added.

The 1Password extension for Safari seems to be broken with 17.2 beta. I've reported this to 1Password.

(I like how I'm a macrumors newbie even though I joined in 2007!)

Does this have the new Journal app like iOS beta does? And if so is their an import function for DayOne where most all existing users would be transitioning from?

Here's hoping that they fix the egregious changes they made to Apple Music's Recently Added section. It is now useless, as it's chronology only goes back 60 Albums. They could at least add the "Album Sort: Date Added" that iOS has if they're going to actively break how I use my Apple Music Library. Please make sure and send Apple feedback if you have this same issue and want it rectified.

I hear it wasn't fixed for 14.1, but here's hoping they listen to their users and fix it for 14.2
