Latest stable version is 3.1.0, that you can download at

Documentation is here:

We're working on improving compilation times, which requires some
important redesign of the library.
The library will be submitted for review after that.

It's been going on for the past few months, but those efforts are
finally coming to an end!
Expect something soon-ish.

You can try looking at the paper on this topic,
"A Parallel Solver for Incompressible Fluid Flows" by Yushan Wang.

Hopefully Joel Falcou, who also worked on this project and also browses
this mailing list, can tell you more about this.
