This one is the place.

Usually they will be part of updates for a futur version if they are 'harvested'
(verified and accepted).
You can usually retrieve them (when approved) within Squeak with
World menu/help/update code from server.

In general, no because ver 3.6 is 'closed', it is the official release. Most of the
updates or for 3.7 alpha.  You retrieve them by the World menu as explained but within
a 3.7 alpha version of Squeak.
