I want to download the Mist browser (as opposed to the Ethereum Wallet accessible via ethereum.org) but can't find a link.

The Github repo (https://github.com/ethereum/mist) and latest release page has a link for the Ethereum Wallet but not for the full Mist browser as far as I can see.

Can anyone point me in the right direction?

Thanks

It is planned to be released at a later time, however for testing purposes, a developer release was made in November: https://github.com/ethereum/mist/releases/tag/0.3.6

It is not compatible with Homestead, well at least the included geth/eth certainly isn't.

  • Is the mist browser (not wallet) under developement at the moment? I can not find news or anything from the near past. Is there a website where I can periodically check for updates?

You can now download Mist as a standalone application from here.


Old answer:

The two are actually the same application currently, but Mist is under heavy development. You can run the Ethereum Wallet in Mist mode, just start the Wallet binary with --mode mist.

You can find the latest version here.

For example on Mac, run /Applications/Ethereum-Wallet.app/Contents/MacOS/Electron --mode mist in Terminal.

Here's a Reddit thread that suggests building it from source is the best way to get an up-to-date Mist:

They are the same. Mist the Wallet and Mist the Browser. Basically the wallet will evolve into the browser.

The dapp browsing capability is not integrated into mist right now. It is supposed to come in a future release.
