Fedora Core 6 Test 2 is now out after a Xen delay late last month. Among the notable highlights in FC6T2 include all packages are recompiled (built using Mock, packages also now have proper BuildRequires), ability to install from additional yum repositories during the Anaconda/KickStart installation, Java web applet from gcjwebplugin, new default font, package updates and upgrades, and Fedora Core 6 Extras. The preferred method of download is using Torrents, and Jesse's Fedora Core 6 Test 2 announcement is available here. Fedora Core 6 Test 3 (FC6T3) is scheduled for release on September 11, while the final Fedora Core 6 release is tentatively scheduled for October 9, 2006.
