It takes quite a while to build the iso images and get them placed on 
mirrors for a release, so this looks about right.

Perhaps since many web browsers don't handle downloads greater than 
2.0GB, the release guys might leave it off the html version ? If you can 
hang five and wait until the mirrors open, and get it from your nearest 
in country local mirror, it will help worldwide distribution...and speed 
downloads for all.

Remember: do not use firefox to download it; it will bomb out at 2G, 
which is an even bigger waste of bandwidth. (although I have got azureus 
to resume the download in the past when the torrent tracker is published ;-)
