Note that test release builds are available from BerliOS.

Mac people: the built-in updater will update you to the new test release if you’re currently on a test release, but you will also need a new version of Debug.oxp.

Note for Linux users, as provided by Getafix:

Linux users who have installed Oolite 1.75.2 or later, using the self-extracting package (not from a Linux distro repository!), may update to the latest deployment release by executing the oolite-update command.
