It's time for the first test release in the Fedora Core 4 development
FC4test1 is available for i386, x86_64, and (for the first time) PPC/PPC64!
You can download it via BitTorrent from http://torrent.linux.duke.edu/ (recommended)
via HTTP/FTP from
http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pub/fedora/linux/core/test/3.90/ or any
of the fine Fedora mirrors listed at
Notable features of FC4test1 include:
. gcc 4.0 as the primary system compiler
. GNOME 2.10.0 Beta 2 included
. The Eclipse IDE included along with some featured plugins
. A solid foundation of Java packages for developers (ant, gcj, tomcat, struts, more classpath stuff)
and the ability to possibly run Java apps through gij.
. Lots of package updates
. Started movement of packages to Fedora Extras
. Did I mention PowerPC support?
That said, this IS a test release, and I guarantee that there will be bugs
that will be annoying. Your help is needed to find and report those bugs
in bugzilla (http://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/). Please also try
updating packages from the development tree, to see if the bugs are
already fixed there.
Questions? Comments? Rotten tomatoes? Send them my way!
