The project doesn't typically provide binaries, partly because there
are so many different combinations that it's hard to justify which
ones to build and which not too.

However, providing binaries of these releases may be really useful,
especially for people in your position. I *really* hope that our
volunteer packagers chose to build binaries of these interim releases
(with the appropriate warnings, of course). It would also be nice if
third-parties (such as Tortoise) used these as part of their own beta
processes.
