Fedora 13 Released

Paul W. Frields announced the release of Fedora 13.

The email there is quite comprehensive, so please take a look at it. Otherwise you can read the release notes in 1 page.

I have not had much time to spend with F13 in the beta period, but from what I have used, I’m quite pleased at how many things work with little to no effort. I encourage the upgrade.

Please download Fedora 13 using the standard mirrors or using the Torrent (recommended).

(Note: I have not published any guides/information for this release yet. This will happen in the next few days. Most of the Fedora 12 information applies.)

CentOS 5.5 Released

The CentOS team just announced the release of CentOS 5.5.

The wiki has the Release Notes. Most major changes can be found in the RHEL 5.5 release information (which CentOS is based).

Running
yum update
should update your system. Keep in mind the recent post-release updates should be syncing with the CentOS mirror soon.

As always, relatively smooth sailing with CentOS!
