Really discontinued?

Is BD free really discontinued though? The label has been here a really long time now, yet you can still find it on their website: http://www.bitdefender.com.au/toolbox/freeapps/desktop/

The fact that for some people the page doesn't work anymore (making people including me believe it's discontinued) is because of a crappy per-country redirect that doesn't always exist.

I can't find any information at all about BD free being discontinued anywhere. This site is the only place where it is claimed.

There's even a lot of activity on their forum about a new BD free beta. I really doubt this discontinued label is correct.

PS: and finally, I just went to their site (through a proxy to stop their locale-redirect from breaking links) and was able to download the fancy new version of bd free, which is definitely not looking discontinued.

But, Bitdefender Antivirus Free Edition for Windows and Antivirus Scanner for Unices(Linux) are different.

Yeah looks like it's just the linux version

Yes there is:
http://download.bitdefender.com/windows/bp/all/bitdefender_bp_64b.exe

Please note that it is from the bitdefender.com website and not some shady third party website.

It is just hard to find.
