I'm looking for minimal/alternate ISO image files of current unstable releases. Where can I find them?
Furthermore, are the core packages in the command line installs stable enough for daily use?
Milestone builds (Alphas and such) are always linked from:
Daily builds of ISOs are available here:
How usable they are isn't really answerable, it really depends on what's going in the archive that day, see this question for more info:
You can find them usually in the same place where you find unstable live cds, however the packages are just as unstable and you should avoid them for daily use.
