For a full list of changes, new features and fixes have a look to the Changelog inside the archive.
Before you can run OpenTTD, you need the following files from the original Windows version of Transport Tycoon Delux as OpenTTD makes use of the original TTD artwork: sample.cat, trg1r.grf, trgcr.grf, trghr.grf, trgir.grf, trgtr.grf.
The archive for MorphOS and other systems can be downloaded from SourceForge.net.
The MorphOS/AmigaOS maintainer does not own a 'real' amiga anymore, but the game should compile fine on all MorphOS compatible systems, someone just has to make the build (gcc, libnix, libsdl, libz and libpng required). Actually everyone with a little bit knowledge should be able to make a build. Source is available on sourceforge (tarball) or SVN (current repository/snapshot).
