To install a unreleased build with the latest features, look for a download link for your platform under the "Unreleased Builds" heading on the official OpenMW downloads page.
Unreleased builds are mentioned above as an install option, however you should prefer an actual release build unless you know you have a reason not to (such as: you need a new feature for some mod).
The unreleased builds contain the latest features, as well as the latest bugs. Release builds are older but much more battle-tested, so you can expect fewer unknown problems.
Users of unreleased builds are always needed; this is how bugs are found and subsequently fixed. But unless you are OK with possible breakage and/or bug reporting, you will want to go with a stable build.
