If you're a developer with a BlackBerry 10 Dev Alpha you can again update your device to the latest software. RIM has made available OS for developers. No word on any changes, updates or fixes just yet, so if you come across any be sure to let us know in the comments. 

To update you device, head to the BlackBerry 10 Dev Alpha update page below. You'll need to have BlackBerry Desktop Software 2.4 Bundle 15 on your PC or Mac in order to update.

BlackBerry Dev Alpha OS now available for developers


Technically speaking, Its not "supposed" to.

Downloading now :D I'll be interesting to see what changed. I'm sure its just the application developments that have been updated but we'll see.

Change log :
This version offers support for new languages, BlackBerry Bridge updates and Multi-media enhancements.

@boman06210 : it's not intended to.

Okay, waiting for crackberry to probe it and see what RIM slipped in unannounced like last time. Multimedia enhancments could be interesting.

"The BlackBerry® Runtime for Android apps has used its own software implementation of OpenGL. Release 10.0.6 of the BlackBerry 10 Dev Alpha Simulator and beta release 2.1.0 of the BlackBerry® PlayBook™ Simulator now support hardware accelerated graphics."

From the devblog. So that's one thing. Another thing might be the flash security update that was mentioned a little while back.

I wouldn't think there would be any Bridge updates on the Dev Alpha side. There isn't a Bridge folder on the Dev Alpha, and I would assume that the Dev Alpha would connect to a PlayBook instead of a BB7 device. I don't see anything much different, so maybe it is just an Android Player update.
