Linux Release Details:
Fedora 8 Test 1 has been released
We interrupt your rawhide for a moment to make a small announcement. Fedora 8 Test one has been loosed upon the world. Included in this release is a 'Fedora' installable 'choose your own adventure' style set of ISOs and trees for i386, x86_64, and ppc(64). Also included are live images of both the Fedora Desktop and the Fedora KDE desktop. These are available for both i686 and x86_64 (x86_64 is DVD size only). Remember these can be used on USB media via the livecd-iso-to-disk utility available in the livecd-tools package. Test 1 is for 'alpha' users.
