jbuilder2006 developer availability

it has now been quite a while since JBuilder 2006 enterprise was released...
In the past, trials of the developer versions were released a few months after the enterprise version, followed eventually by the foundation version but this has not happened for v2006.
I purchased developer 2005, and would like to buy developer 2006, but I will not do so unless I can try it first. When I say try it, I do not mean installing the trial enterprise version (which has many features I do not want or need).
When (if ever) can I expect a trial version of 2006 developer?
FYI: I am in New Zealand and I contacted the local sales office a few months ago asking about this. Their response was that no version other than the enterprise edition would ever be available for trial. (i.e -->the distribution strategy has changed since 2005 and tough luck)
I hope he is wrong and I can actually try 2006 developer and not be stuck with 2005 forever :)

Indeed, and the fact that the dev trial still is not available is not
good. By this time in the 2005 cycle, we already had both versions (dev
trial and foundation).
It strongly suggests that Borland is perhaps looking ahead to Peloton,
and is probably not going to be putting out these for 2006 any more..
