You can download the latest version of the Essential theme from this link. As far as update for Moodle 3.0 is concerned, Gareth posted:

The Moodle 3.0 version will take quite a bit of time to make because of all the changes in ‘bootstrapbase/less/moodle’.  At the moment I am considering an alternative funding model to support the theme whereby some of the extras would be removed and then go into a paid for ‘child’ theme.

So, it seems that Moodle 3.0 version for Essential theme will take some time until then you can enjoy other new Moodle themes here.
