Good news everyone!

At long last the Fedora Secondary Arch Team for Power proudly presents 
the Fedora 16 Alpha release.

It's still hot, so grab it while you can from here (in case you have 
appropriate hardware, obviously):


But beware, it's still a bit rough around the edges and needs some more 
TLC, but hey, it's an Alpha, right? ;)

More details about this Alpha release can be found here:


and we do have an official release announcement as well here:


(both of which have shamelessly been taken from the primary arch Fedora 
16 wikis and modified to reflect the state of Power architecture, known 
issues and some workarounds for those).

I want to thank everyone involved in making this happen, it's been a 
pretty long stretch with quite a few hurdles, but we finally got the 
first big milestone done towards the goal to get a Fedora 16 on Power out.

Next up obviously Beta and then RC, so stay tuned for more updates in 
the near future!

As usual, the whole team can typically be found on the #fedora-ppc IRC 
channel on FreeNode and via our email list:


And we have our Secondary Arch wiki with (decently) updated information:


Thanks & regards, Phil
