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 ;-)
