The tar.gz works on linux and a separate .gz file must be there for it to work on window. Correct me if i am wrong here but as far as i have seen most packages have both tar.gz and .gz files the former for linux based systems and the latter for windows machines.

The type="source" flag to biocLite() installs the .tar.gz (source)
package, or at least it is supposed to. I'm not sure why it isn't
working for you.
The link you sent above says the version is 1.10.0.
