As it is Sonic Month 2019 now, lots of new Sonic releases are here. They are already on Hidden Palace, and I hope they deserve a place here! You can also discuss these betas here. Share your findings!
Here are the currently leaked betas:
Sega Multimedia Studio: Sega CD demo (dated 1992-05-29)
Sonic CD (v0.02, dated 1992-12-04)
Sonic CD (v0.28A, dated 1993-05-12)
Sonic CD (v0.51, dated 1993-06-21)
Sonic CD (v0.70, dated 1993-07-12, later copy of beta 712)
Sonic CD (v1.05, dated 1993-08-01, alt copy)
Sonic CD (v1.09, dated 1993-08-06, later copy of beta 806)
Sonic CD (v1.11, dated 1993-08-19)
Sonic CD (v1.15, dated 1993-10-13)
There will be more releases in the future, so I will update this post when new betas arise.
Also, according to the Hidden Palace pages, these are dumped via DiscImageCreator BIN/CUE and have proper scans, so it wouldn't be a problem if I include the scans (?)
So, if someone didn't already uploaded them, can I upload these to the FTP?
EDIT: I found out that some of the scans are JPEG (ugh!) but they are betas, so I probably won't add them. Check the Hidden Palace pages if you are interested. I will add the PNG scans.
UPDATE November 3: The second batch arrived!
The new betas are the following:
Sonic Chaos (dated 1993-05-17, GG beta)
Sonic Chaos (dated 1993-06-30, SMS beta)
Sonic Chaos (dated 1993-07-13, SMS beta)
I will upload these to the FTP as soon as I can!
UPDATE November 10: Here is the third batch. It is actually wrong to call this a "batch" because it is only one game:
Sonic the Hedgehog 2 (dated 1992-09-14, MD beta)
I actually uploaded all the aforementioned betas here, they are probably being processed right now.
UPDATE November 11: Here is another beta:
Sonic the Hedgehog 2 (dated 1992-08-21, MD beta)
According to Hidden Palace, the next event at November 16 is nothing to miss.
UPDATE November 17: Here is the final one! And this time a very special guest decided to visit us today...
Sonic the Hedgehog 3 (dated 1993-11-03)
This concludes Sonic Month, however, there are more things still hiding.

OK, will do tomorrow.
EDIT: All uploaded! I didn't upload the alt 801 because it is the exact same copy, and I tucked a Sonic 3 beta which is not on the FTP.

I wonder if Hidden Palace have got any builds of Sonic 1 or Sonic 3 (builds that use sprites from Sonic 2)?

Pre-release versions of those games are very elusive, and it would be cool to finally get an authentic build of these Sonic games (especially Sonic 1).

Sonic CD v0.02 contains a CDDA version of Palmtree Panic Past, which makes it the best Sonic beta of all time.

Asking out of curiosity, I have uploaded all betas here, but I can't see them yet. Is there something gone wrong on the process?

If you uploaded to the FTP, it's not an automated process. Once an admin reviews the files (and renames/sorts accordingly), they'll be visible.

OK, blame my impatience.
