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 (recommended)
via HTTP/FTP from 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 ( 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!
