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:

Thank you! I got what I was looking for - and if it's not too much of a bother, can you link me to the Natty Alpha 2's Unity meta-package as well? Googling never helps when looking for them. – Oxwivi Feb 17 '11 at 18:17
it's just "unity" – Jorge Castro Feb 17 '11 at 18:18

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.
