Just as we came down to the fifth day to Fedora Core 5, we have received a message stating that this release will be DELAYED. No worries, however, as this release is now expected to occur on March 20, 2006 (Monday). With this five day delay, they do anticipate they will be able to include the final release of GNOME v2.14.0 (rather than a stable GNOME v2.13 development build) as it is schedule for release on March 15, and Jeremy Katz hopes to have the tarballs this coming Monday. Ah well, five more days of waiting :).
