No. For Fedora 18, we did not have installation DVD media
produced. One reason was missing Secure Boot support, another
was - Multi Live DVD is more convenient to try Fedora. Only 
a few people asks for DVD for some reasons and we shipped
installation DVDs to countries with limited internet access 
as DVD with bunch of software is pretty handy there. But 
nobody complaint after we start shipping Live DVDs only
(probably it's also because of lifted CD size limitation -
it now includes everything for daily use). 

But it leads to the question - how many people still prefer
Installation DVDs? That "default" offering to download is 
Desktop Live spin now, KDE SIG officially supports KDE spin 
for installation... As EMEA Ambassadors, we distribute Multi 
Live DVDs only now.
