Depends on what precisely you mean by "release". If it is a tarball of
the sources, we already have these:


In a release, the most prominent binary is the Windows installer. While
it would be possible to define buildbot build steps to create a Windows
installer (and msi.py even has the notion of "snapshot" builds already),
fetching the results from the buildbot slave isn't really supported.

Whether daily RPMs or Mac installers would be possible, I don't know.
