I don't think, that they are going to release it before evening CET. And test releases might also be a bit late.

If you don't know where to find it, the test releases probably aren't for you. This may sound like I'm being an *******, but really, test releases are for _testing_. If you use a test release you're supposed to try things out and report issues via bugzilla.redhat.com. It's part of the development process, it's not for day-to-day use by normal users.

If you'd like to help in testing however, that's great and I thank you.

I am testing, and am a tester, and have an account with buzilla, and do use this. I also am helping with the Fedora Docs Project. The devel process is for those who know what they are getting into, that i agree with, and am one myself.

The only reason i didnt know where it was and needed some help, is because i was answered in Fedora-docs mailing list, of which i am a member, but the answer is in Brazillian, and i cant translate brazillian, so instead of waiting for some miracle in language skills to be aquired, i asked here, as it gets the information quicker.

Thanks for the thanks, i try my best to please and help. The link does work and i shall be testing it tonight and posting here on how it looks for those interested.

Yeah it's launch date is meant to be in September and I only just stuck FC5 in in march seems like just a month ago to be honest. 3 more months till FC6, may stick with core 5 first month or so. Then again I may have the urge to upgrade who knows.

I've got it up and running with both Gnome & KDE. Just started evaluation and checking for bugs. Minor stuff so far - looks like a pretty smooth T-1 at this point. I wouldn't trade FC-5 at this point, but it's very promising.

It is very smooth and promising. Especially the compatability with Intel Macs. I have yet to test all features, but im sure i shall soon!! As for tradingn in FC5, i wouldnt do that, for a while. Final release is the only time you should really, as it is a test version. It could eat your hard drive up and spit it out.

EDIT:
Well i have upgraded my test machine, and it now runs FC6. Few bugs but under the hood so much is better. A step forward, and something to look out for in September. Bit raw at the moment.
