There are a couple more bugs we'd like to fix for the 0.9 release but want to get as much feedback on the app in general before we go out. Please download this build and test with it and report any show stopping bugs that you find. We are still looking to do a 0.9 final sometime Monday." Builds can be found on the FTP site.

The Windows installer uses a third-party compressor that makes it smaller; currently this is not available for Mac / Linux.

Having said that though... It appears that the SDK is LGPL/CPL licensed (see 7zip.org); so a self extracting archive doesn't seem impossible, if you can get people to run that. I was under the impression that Macs just used disk images though.

I imagine size reductions by cutting stuff out will continue to happen on all three platforms.
