Version 0.3.17 is now available.

Changes:
- new getwork, thanks m0mchil
- added transaction fee setting in UI options menu
- free transaction limits
- sendtoaddress returns transaction id instead of "sent"
- getaccountaddress <account>

The UI transaction fee setting was easy since it was still there from 0.1.5 and all I had to do was re-enable it.

The accounts-based commands: move, sendfrom and getbalance <account> will be in the next release.  We still have some more changes to make first.

where are the windows binaries ?
Why no 0.3.16?
and what exactly does "free transaction limits" mean? what is the new transaction fee schedule?

Is transaction fee used for confirmation priorities? If yes, it would be cool to allow changes of fees directly on 'send coins' dialog. For some donations of few bitcoins I don't care about time, but if I want to send coins to somebody who is waiting to confirmation, it can help...

that's what the "added transaction fee setting in UI options menu" bit is. you can set the fee you'll pay through the gui. (earlier it was only possible with bitcoind.)

Yes, I found that in .17 and it is cool. But I think the 'send coins' dialog is better place for this because of usability. It gives easier way how to set up fee separately for every transaction. But it is only an idea and I'm happy also for current solution.

yea, i also think that the 'send coins' dialog is a better place for it. or at least, to have it in both.

Are you planning on changing the fee for every transaction?

yes, when it gets to the point that fees really make a difference in speed of getting into the chain... i might send a larger fee for transactions i want to be fast, and smaller or none where i don't care about speed (e.g., donations).

I think it's worth keeping the default interface as simple as possible for new users. If people want to set a price in the "send coins" dialog, this field should be enabled by a configuration option, not presented to new users.
Who's in charge of the OSX build? Given it usually lags behind I assume it is done by someone not using OSX as the primary OS. I can help with this if that's the case, just point me to how things are done right now.
Laszlo does them, but I haven't asked him to do one for a while because there wasn't anything major.  I'll ask him to do this version.
