Fedora Core 4 test 3 is out
The third test release of Fedora Core 4 is now available. New features in FC4 test 3 include GNOME 2.10, KDE 3.4, and a preview of GCC 4.0. PowerPC is also supported. Fedora Coreis an RPM-based Linux distribution, developed by the community-supported Fedora Project, sponsored by Red Hat, and derived from the original Red Hat Linux distribution.
The Fedora Project has the goal of building a complete, general-purpose operating system from open source software. Fedora came about as a result of a new business strategy which Red Hat implemented late in 2003. The project envisages that conventional Linux home users will use Fedora Core, and intends that it replace the consumer distributions of Red Hat Linux. (Red Hat has positioned Red Hat Enterprise Linux as a business-oriented Linux distribution, and it offers software support for that distribution.) Support for Fedora comes from the greater community.
Fedora Core 4 Test 3 is now available from Red Hat and at distinguished mirror sites near you. Fedora Core has expanded in this release to four binary ISO images and four source ISO images, and is available for both x86-64 and i386.
