Many users run straight from the development branch (it’s generally fine to do so), but you might also wish to consume a release. You can find instructions on http://ansible.cc/docs/gettingstarted.html for a variety of platforms. If you want a tarball of the last release, go to http://ansible.cc/releases/ and you can also install with pip (though that will bring in some optional binary dependencies you normally do not need).
