Some LOLA products for the PDS release (#5), which will be officially out on March 15, 2011, are now available on the LOLA PDS node !
Label files and documentation are still being worked out, but I thought it'd be good to post (and some of you know we usually put those products online a bit early)
The data released are from July 13, 2009 to January 31, 2011.
There are EDRs/RDRs (individual profiles) for the courageous ones. But most of you will prefer the map products ( http://imbrium.mit.edu/DATA/LOLA_GDR/ ).
In addition to IMG products (int16), there are JP2 files (GeoJPEG2000) which are compressed (lossless) and contain projection information. If you use a GIS programs, that should be helpful. The attached XML files contain the statistics already, which could save you 10+ minutes for the bigger grids upon loading. (Due to PDS filenaming conventions, you need to rename them to file.JP2.aux.xml for that to work properly; tested on ArcGIS).
And keep in mind that in both those formats, the data were digitized at a 0.5m granularity, so you will need to divide the values by 2 to get the actual heights (in meters).
Also of interest for visualization are the updated LOLA texture packages for Celestia.

It'd be great also to know how this community is using the LOLA data, so please reply if you do:
1- Experimental Data Records (EDR) [raw telemetry]
2 - Reduced Data Records (RDR) [altimetric profiles]
3 - IMG Gridded Data Records (GDR) [maps]
4 - JP2 Gridded Data Records (GDR) [maps]
5 - Celestia Virtual Textures

I realized there was a mistake in the level 0 normal map. (The files were the same as the topography texture...)
The ZIP files have been updated. In case you downloaded the "old" version, you can download the two level 0 files here instead of re-downloading the ZIP.
