    кстати is the tried and true version. I don't know about any alternatives though.

    There is also 'между прочим', but they two (with кстати) are not fully interchangeable. The discussion could be longer than that:
    differences - "On a side note" vs. "by the way" - English Language & Usage Stack Exchange

    кстати! To introduce additional information that is not directly related to the first idea or sentence!
