The most up-to-date version of the DPS8M emulator is always the one at the HEAD of the "master" branch of the GIT repository located here: DPS8M GIT Sources. We currently do not have a Continuous Integration (CI) solution in place for building the emulator on the various platforms whenever the source code changes. When we do, it will be possible to download pre-built emulator executables (for various platforms) that correspond to each new GIT commit. on various platforms.

A note regarding the safety of software downloaded from this site: The DPS8M Emulator project is controlled by Multicians and maintained on SourceForge. You are free to examine the sources and build the emulator from source. If you wish to download and run pre-compiled executables, rest assured that we have built these executables directly from the sources. If you are uncomfortable running pre-built executables, please build from source.

You can find the latest version of the DPS8M emulator as of 03/20/2016 for the Linux and Mac OS X platforms, on the following page:

I will try to keep this reasonably up-to-date when there are significant enhancements/improvements committed to the source tree. To get the latest version of the DPS8M emulator in source form, and for instructions on how to download and build it, see the following page:
