Well the subject heading says it all. Fedora (http://fedora.redhat.com/) Core 3 has been released today. You can find the ISO's on these mirrors (http://fedora.redhat.com/download/mirrors.html) or join the torrent (http://torrent.linux.duke.edu/).

Unfortunately the release notes haven't been updated yet for Core 3 on the Fedora website, but it shouldn't be too long ...

The ISO's haven't appeared yet on the Jetstream Games Realm server ftp://linux.jetstreamgames.co.nz/dist/fedora/ either yet. Watch this space hopefully! :)

I hope they´re faster than they were with Mandrake 10. I nearly died of old age waiting

It appears to be there but only a DVD ISO so you would have to have a DVD writer to make the disc :(

JSG have finished updating their server so the full set of Fedora Core 3 ISO's are now available:
ftp://linux.jetstreamgames.co.nz/dist/fedora/3/i386/iso/

It is a real pity the JSG server now connects at your standard ADSL speed, but at least the download won't be counted against your data cap :)

Isn't 4,293,181,597 KB 4.2 TeraBytes (TB)?

Hope not as I downloaded my DVD off an overseas server and that would of blown my data cap :D

Actually, 2408604 KB is 2352 MB which is 2.28 Gigs - the correct size for the DVD ISO give or take some MB's.

Actually, where did you get that file size from? The JSG server gives the DVD iso as 2408604 KB. The figure you gave would be about 4 TB's if I did my maths correctly.
