You can get a copy of the current (2015f) release in zip form here:


and similarly for older releases going back to 2012e.  The latest experimental 
version is here:


This isn't official, and these zip files differ from official releases in what 
should be unimportant ways.  A few *.txt files are missing that can be drived 
automatically, there's an extra .gitignore file, the last-modified times on the 
source files are incorrect, and perhaps a few other things that I missed.
