As usual, all downloads can be found on Releases. But this time you'll also find a MacOS X DMG, thanks to Jiří Techet!

Additionally, to try and avoid another long delay before the next version, we decided to try and embrace a time-based 4 months release schedule. If we can stick to it, next release should come out around November 15.
