Fedora Core 5 “Bordeaux” is officially released! Please download using the official mirror list or through Bittorrent. The release notes give a comprehensive list of changes. There is also a Fedora Core 5 Tour with some media. Additionally there are some screenshots courtesy of OSdir.
As a warning to early adopters: Some issues in the kernel may require immediate updating (use yum) and the Gnome 2.14 has a great deal of odd behaviour. There are some installation notes to help (based on Test3, updates soon available). Please see my Personal Fedora Core 5 Installation Guide. Stanton Finley also hase some installation notes available, although a bit more than needed for a desktop, they are still a good resource. I imagine the fedora-list mailing list as well as the forum websites will soon start providing support.
An incremental review compared with FC5-Test3 will be available in a few days. Current focus will be to install and get things working first!
Fedora is a good distribution with many problems, but they won’t be fixed without more users! Please download, use and enjoy!
