We interrupt your rawhide for a moment to make a small announcement.

Fedora 8 Test one has been loosed upon the world today.  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. This is the time when we would like to have full
community participation. Without this participation both hardware and
software functionality suffers. We need your help. Join us!

Road Map And Release Schedule
This is the first test release of the Fedora 8 release, which
is scheduled for November 8, 2007.

For further information see 

How to get it:
DVD and network installation are available. We also offer two
different varieties of installable Live media.

For those of you already running rawhide, all you need to do is yum update.
You may already have packages newer than Test 1 installed.
