I have put the first experimental .iso images at 
The only uptodate binaries on here are for Linux/386, but perhaps
someone would like to check the install programs still work? otherwise,
the difference between this and TL2003 is

- fixed or upgraded about 100 packages
- changed from texmf to texmf-dist for the main tree
- implementation of new TDS standards  for font map files etc
- new beta-release of pdftex etc

the eagle-eyed will notice that the demo CD is 744 megabyes,
so we can go back to the business of  arguing about whether that
release is still needed, or discuss what to omit from it.
