Hitting the web a little over a year ago was Fedora Core 5 Bordeaux (March 20, 2006). One of the important milestones for Core 5 was the introduction of mono with tools such as beagle, f-spot, and tomboy. Fedora Core 5 had also replaced Red Hat's up2date with Pirut and Pup as the updater and package management tool. GNOME 2.14 and OpenOffice.org 2.0.2 were among the updated packages in this release.
The release notes for Bordeaux had portrayed Fedora Core 5 as a student after Core 4 was talked up like a salesperson. The artwork in this release was quite bubbly.
