I had a chat with Alex about this. I plan to access the installers from:
http://live.osgeo.org/WindowsInstallers/ and

I think Alex plans to use redirects within Apache to point this 
directory somewhere else, probably a download directory somewhere.
Alex mentioned that the directory would double as a local cache for our 
iso build process, which we are looking to set up in order to make the 
build process more reliable.

I'm using camel case because we are using camel case in the iso directory.
I'm happy to change to all lower case for a future release, but at the 
moment, I'm going for minimum change.

Ah, that is a mistake. Now corrected. Thanks for picking it up.

Yes, I'll add to my todo list, if someone doesn't get to it before me.

I've just updated file sizes and version number for all download pages 
(in English as well as translated pages). It seems that there has been 
hardly any change in file size since last release.
I haven't tried burning a DVD from ISO, has someone confirmed it fits?
