Tomorrow is Halloween, but this week at the Fedora Project, we're
not scared of anything. Today, we officially release Fedora 29!
As always, this release is the result of the hard work of thousands
of people working in Fedora, and many times more working in all of
the upstream projects. Thank you and congratulations to everyone!
