Comment On This Article

After a one-week delay of FC5T3, due to having the need to rebuild the entire distribution due to changes in the most recent version of GCC, Fedora Core 5 Test 3 has finally been released. As the release announcements cite, changes consist of Xen with the x86_64 packages, package selection within the reinstaller enabled, re-built using a newer GNU Compiler Collection snapshot of Version 4.1 (for performance and security), improved hibernation function, PowerPC Install CDs are bootable again, unified SRPM (Source RPM) set rather than a per architecture basis, lots of bug fixes beyond Fedora Core 5 Test 2, and 1600+ packages in the yum repository. Mirrors for Fedora Core 5 Test 3 are available here. Fedora Core 5 is still scheduled for a final release on March 15, which is scheduled for the same day as the launch of GNOME v2.14! Official Phoronix coverage of Fedora Core 5 Test 3 will be coming this week with new screenshots as well as a performance examination.
