With this announcement, its now official!!!. Fedora 9 "Sulphur" has been released!!!
The Release Summary describes very well on whats the latest and greatest OSS technologies offered by this release of Fedora.
Grab it NOW while its still hot!. However, for those who have fallen slave to the proprietary NVidia/ATi drivers, grab it now only if you are brave - because your vendor could not catch up with the latest and greatest of OSS.
With Fedora 9 released, Fedora 10 have started rolling, and the cycle of innovation and creation begins again!.
For those who are upgrading from Fedora 7 or Fedora 8, give PreUpgrade a try!. It allows an almost-live upgrade from your old Fedora release to Fedora 9!!. RPMs for preupgrade with F9 listed as an option are available / pointed here.
Congratulations and kudos to all Fedora Contributors. Have fun and keep hacking!!!! (^-^)
