It's no longer "beta", they are already going out the door. openSUSE is 
going to be on board with it soon as well.

As for the "standard Xubuntu linting", we have been making Xubuntu discs 
for a few years. In fact it was someone with Xubunut when 6.06 or 6.10 
was out who first asked if we would include it in our catalog. That 
listing incurs our standard $3.99 per CD charge though (plus shipping), 
whereas the Quick Ship discs drop the $3.99 cost. I've went ahead and 
turned off the prior listing simply because I'd hate for someone to 
order and pay the $3.99 for a CD when it should have been free.

If you want to place a single link you can use this one:

If you want to place a link for strictly Xubuntu then there are two:
Xubuntu Quick Ship discs in the U.S.A.:
Xubuntu Quick Ship discs World Wide:

The above links will stay the same even when 9.10 is released, we'll 
simply update the listings.

It's a bit crazy here today, hope I explained that well enough. If 
something isn't clear please let me know.

Thank you,
