The update is available through Software Update in System Preferences or System Settings to anyone that has downloaded the browser. The update is available to all users, regardless of whether they have a developer account or not. Furthermore, Safari Technology Preview can be used side-by-side with the existing Safari browser, so that users can compare the two and give feedback to Apple on their browser development process.
