While Fedora Core 5 is not slated to be released until Monday, March 20, 2006, some users have managed to find a few of the mirrors unlocked and have already begun downloading the various CDs and DVDs. After that, a few have already begun hosting bit-torrents of these new FC5 ISOs. An active discussion is presently taking place over at Fedora Forum. Of course, some of these sources may be a bit sluggish when it comes to the downloading speeds. Look forward to all of the Fedora Red Hat mirrors becoming available on Monday morning. As we had found out in the interview with Greg DeKoenigsberg, the Fedora 5 Extras should be available on launch-date. However, a quick visit to the Extras Repository shows the downloads for Fedora 5 are already available as of today, and are unlocked! Even if you're not into getting a jump start on downloading these final ISOs from the various sources, you can surely begin downloading the new Fedora Extras :). Also, the folks over at ATrpms, have had their Fedora 5 repository available for some time now. The ATrpms 5 repo is here. FreshRPMs still has yet to post their stable FC5 packages.
