[Bf-committers] Blender-Setup for Windows + LZMA?

we offered the official (stable) builds as 7z-files for some months, but 
people barely used it, so we abandoned it again.
A self extracting 7z would be an option as well, but in that case there 
were security concerns.

So all in all, I don't think we will offer the daily builds as 7z in the 
near future.
