Just to add to ronlau's answer, yes it is currently. The milestone release is part of a process that should be producing better and better refined versions until a release of 11.2 (final) will occur, IIRC in November/December and at that time 11.2 will be the latest release.
The DVD has more room and you get more 'stuff' on the DVD than the CD. You should have a workable, but minimal, desktop out of even the CD version, but I think that you have to choose which GUI version that you get.
In a way, this doesn't matter. If you have a minimal install (or even a pretty big install, but lacking something that you want) you just engage the package manager and it gets pulls you want to add from the 'net.
I've never done a comparison between the time to 'download big DVD image' versus 'download small CD image, plus pull down much 'stuff' from the 'net', but, unless you are installing on several PCs or you have a pretty limited 'net connection, it probably isn't worth worrying about.
