Please update this when OS X 10.12 hits!

Also: the "incl. seeds" releases should be specified as "Dev betas" instead. With El Capitan, Apple pushed two beta channels, public and dev. They're mostly the same, but sometimes the public channel gets updates a day or two later.

"Beta program" is rather ambiguous as there are two channels (explained above) used for updates now.

The only "seed" program I remember was Mavericks, back when Apple still used the appleseed.apple.com domain.
