Natty beta CD images are released!

CD Beta images for what will in time become Ubuntu 11.04 Natty are released. The 64-bit .iso is quite likely a bit too big to fit on a 700 MB CD-R. However, the 32-bit .iso should fit just fine on a CD as the image size is actually 691.7 MB (where sourceforge reports MiB.) Feedback is appreciated. As usual, all mono is removed. Rhythmbox (with Ubuntuone Music Store) replaces Banshee, Gnote replaces Tomboy, and Thunderbird replaced Evolution (not mono related.) Local dnscache is enabled. Preload is included. Thanks for any input.
