    Just for comparison, and to immediately shut down all the "It didnt ship on time!!" people... Fedora 18 was 2 months late. This release was 1month late, and honestly is a much better (in terms of features) release. Congrats to the Fedora team, I plan on doing a FedUp upgrade on release-day to see how it goes-- will report back, but I will be wiping and installing overtop of it afterwards just because I'm changing around partitions.

      Don't care if its late. Its semi-not-far-off, and totally free. Try finding a non-free OS that ships that close to on-time.

        I don't understand how I can download it.

        The original mailing list post seems a bit cryptic too me. Fedora's mirrors only have F19 Alpha and Beta versions.

          Click your architecture and then 'iso' and then your download link. Fedora names release candidates as "TC" 's, if I remember right it stands for Test Candidate but regardless-- there ya go

            I'm running Fedora 19 since beta, and it's been a really smooth ride so far.
            Especially Gnome Shell 3.8 is a real improvement over 3.6, I like how Gnome is incrementally getting better and better. :-)

            And if Adam is reading this: Thank you. I know the QA people got a lot of flak for Anaconda in 18, but don't let that demotivate you,
            Anaconda in 19 is really better than in 18, and I encourage everyone to try it out once 19 is fully released.

            In fact, I recently converted my parents PCs from Windows to Fedora (18), and even they really like it, especially the slick interface of Gnome Shell.

            Good job guys!

              I just realized there is a MASSIVE typo in my first post...

              CORRECTION: Fedora 18 shipped 2 months late, Fedora 19 is set to ship 1 WEEK late-- not 1month.

                  That is really the test candidate from a while back (see the date in the files). If you want RC1, get it from

                    Thanks for the correction Rahul, perhaps that could be made more obvious in the mailing list announcement next time. I only found the link that I did by best guess and what 'looked right.'
