How to install developers firmware?

Is there somewhere a manual how to install the experimantal/developers preview firmware?

Currently version is v1.5, how can this be installed?

    @B3rt current experimental release is 1.3.2 and you can install it by marking the checkbox at settings > updates

    Development Preview is currently at 1.5.0-alpha.2 and is not general accessible. Access can be requested by contacting @JeroenVollenbrock on Slack.
    Please be aware, it's DP for a reason; I can and will break stuff (like Zigbee in alpha.2)... so that most severe issues are solved before releasing this release to experimental...

    If all goes well, and no severe issues are found, a DP release is released to experimental typically a week after it's release to DP...

    And once you are in DP-Preview you can only go back to experimental / stable by a full reset of your Homey...

    so it's IMHO not worth the risk for most people...
