Obligatory screenie: Old Mine got more shiny!
You can find binaries for Windows and MacOSX over at SourceForge.net
We now have a Linux static binary as well, but in case this doesn't work for you, you can compile the source package yourself. Note that we now use CMake instead of autotools, so be sure to follow the instructions on our wiki.
Also worth mentioning is that while we now have Wiimote support for most such devices around, one specific model is not working yet and hopefully we'll be able to fix that sometime later. See details for that and how to connect your Wiimote over at supertuxkart.net/wiimote.
That should be all, please help us test and give feedback especially if you notice any problems. Enjoy!
