    Fedora Core 5 Test 3 released

    Forty-four years ago, John Hershel Glenn Jr. is successfully launched
    into space aboard the Friendship 7 spacecraft on the first orbital
    flight by an American astronaut. Russia had already sent two cosmonauts
    into orbit at this time. In the many following years Russian and
    America race each other for space superiority. Much later Russia and
    America have finally started cooperating in Earth's adventures into
    space. Competition is good, but collaboration can by so much better.

    Today, Open Source stands as one of the ultimate examples of
    collaboration. No boundaries, no borders, no barriers. As an example
    of this collaboration, we are proud to announce:

    Fedora Core 5 Test 3 Now Available
    ==================================
    The Fedora Project announces the third release of the Fedora Core 5
    development cycle, available for the i386, x86_64, and PPC/PPC64
    architectures. Beware that Test releases are recommended only for Linux
    experts/enthusiasts or for technology evaluation, as many parts are
    likely to be broken and the rate of change is rapid.

    http://fedora.redhat.com/About/schedule/
    Final is scheduled for release March 15. This aggressive schedule makes vitally
    important your help in testing, reporting and suggesting fixes for bugs.
    Please direct bugs to http://bugzilla.redhat.com, Product Fedora Core,
    Version fc5test3. As always, be sure that your bug is not already fixed
    by updates and search for existing bugs before filing.

    http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Core/R...FreezeProcess/
    During the continual freeze process, very few changes will be
    introduced. This is to prevent new bugs from surfacing and to ensure
    that Fedora Core 5 is the best release we can make it. Rawhide reports
    over the next three weeks should be very sparse. Please do test the few
    updates extensively.

    Thanks to all in the Fedora Project who have contributed to this
    release. Your continued efforts are what makes Fedora possible.

    Downloads

    I can't wait for the release version!! I've heard nothing but good things about 5 Beta.

    It rocks so much it's just incredible - I strongly recommend grabbing the final release and installing it everywhere.

    That looks sooo nice! I too am awaiting the Fedora Release but I just wish that they would wait to include a stable version of GNOME 2.14

    In all likelihood they will ship with RC1 and then release 2.14 as an update - remember that redhat develops large parts of GNOME so they know what they are doing.
