Fedora 19 Reaches End Of Life State

If you're still running Fedora 19 for some reason, you better think about upgrading to Fedora 20/21 as F19 has now reached its end of life.

Kevin Fenzi announced that as of today Fedora 19 is end-of-life for updates and support, including security updates. Fedora 20 will continue receiving updates but only until one month after the release of Fedora 22 -- per normal policy, the F19 lifespan was just long given the year it took for Fedora 21 to materialize.

Concerned Fedora users can find out more details via the final F19 announcement. If you're still on F19, it's really worth upgrading to Fedora 21 for the numerous enhancements that have landed in the distribution for both desktop/workstation and server users.
