Wow, thanks everyone for the awesome feedback! It looks like it is an almost unanimous agreement to release the binaries to the public.

They are now being automatically built and are available here: https://micropython.org/download/#esp8266

I totally agree.

I came to micropython on the ESP8266 through the Adafruit tutorial. That gives reasonable instructions for building a VM with the tool chain. I used that but then this week decided to update my micropython to the latest version. I ran into issues with the tool chain assembly and did not want to stall on 'playing' with the ESP until could sort out the compiler.

Having a latest binary was fabulous - thank you.

This should make a big difference to the rate of adoption of micropython because people will be able to download completed projects as a starting point.....this really should help newbies get the bug...

Thanks!
