Indeed :).

For Windows, there are some experimental builds available at
http://web.student.tuwien.ac.at/~e0325258/projects/c/texworks/. These do
not have the full feature set (CJK has not been tested, for example, and
python scripting is not available), but should be sufficient for testing
the new features and bug fixes. More official builds will be posted once
I've set up the final build system.

For Linux, test builds are generally not available officially. Some
people may provide them for different systems, though (I myself produce
Ubuntu packages at https://launchpad.net/~texworks/+archive/ppa)

For Mac, things are a little more difficult. I have neither experience
with it nor do I have one available for testing. Jonathan Kew has agreed
to produce Mac builds (he said these are the easiest for him to do), but
if there are some people out there who are interested/willing to build
on the Mac themselves that would be great (I'm sure with the community
on the mailing list we can work out the details of the compilation).
