As far as I can determine, the most recent edition is FM 94 BUFR,
which is edition 2, as documented in

  http://www.ofcm.gov/BUFR/BUFR.HTM

from the Office of the Federal Coordinator for Meteorology, see the
Publications link at

  http://www.ofcm.gov/homepage/text/pubs.htm

If there is an edition 3 and you find a reference to where it is
documented, I'd like to know about it too.

All the NWS decoders I know about can be accessed from 

  http://www.nws.noaa.gov/tdl/iwt/index.htm

but unfortunately, no BUFR decoders are included yet.
