I’ve been running BZR 5054, but am setting up a new machine for all my electronics/development stuff. Is there a newer commit that I should build from, or stick with 5054 and wait for the new stable release? (Any day now, right?
I think there is a stable version comming up. I just use the daily builds on any new machine.

A new release will be released, don’t worry. Currently work is being done in making daily builds available on the major platforms, such that every user do not have to rebuild themself, for easier testing. The new releases will be lightweight releases, meaing that you should grab a new release to update and no backports are made.
Also devbisme, the reason for not releasing stables, is there has not been enough resources to mandate time for such, and the goal is to provide nightly builds to ease …
Also kee track of this thread :
Any news on the official KiCad stable build?
Ok, I’ll grab the latest commit and build it. (Ubuntu so I can easily do the build myself)
FWIW there is also a PPA for ubuntu.
