Netbeans free DVD distribution program suspended indefinitely

Extract of the email from Netbeans Webmaster...

I regret to inform you that the DVD distribution program has been suspended indefinitely as we evaluate options to simplify the distribution of NetBeans software.

Since August 30th, 2005, NetBeans.org has shipped more than 225,000 CDs & DVDs to developers around the world through this initiative! During this period, NetBeans has experienced explosive growth as a download, media kit, and a community. To stay ahead of this encouraging trend we are looking into ways to effectively satisfy increasing demand for NetBeans software worldwide. Please bear with us.

In the interim, we are offering the same great contents of NetBeans IDE 6.1 ML DVD Starter Kit as an ISO image that you are free to download and burn. Alternatively, visit our download page for installer bundles as lightweight as 18MB. In the near future we also hope to offer our downloads via mirrors and bittorrent ...
