Question June 6 Will Be the Next Fedora Core Release?

I saw on the Fedora site that June 6th will be the day Fedora Core 4 will be released. Has anybody heard anything different?

Also, from a user and administrator standpoint are there any major improvements?

What about multimedia improvements (built in Xine or MP3 listener, etc.)?

Thanks for the information.

Linux is on my laptop.

The release date has been set at June 6th for a while now, but, if I remember correctly, FC3's release date was pushed back by one week before its release. However, I think if they were going to change it, they would have done it by now.

The major updates will be the new gnome and kde desktop environments and from my experience, Red Hat doesn't like to include multimedia applications due to worries over copywrite laws. The latest xmms will most likely be included, but you'll probably need to install the mp3 player plugin from yum.

Fedora Core has always been the testing ground for Red Hat and always contains bleeding edge software, so I'm sure you can expect the very latest updates.

I'm no expert on the subject, but I hope this helps anyway.

Moved: More suitable in our Fedora forum.

If you want to see the changes made in Fedora before the stable release, download and install the beta and or release candidates..

Bad news; I just checked the release schedule and it has been pushed back by one week. I'm disappointed, but not surprised because I imagine it's pretty tough to put something this big together and since they did it last time...oh well, one more week is so bad, is it?

It had something to do with the name of FC4, they have changed it, can't recall what.
