Hello everyone,

Fedora 18 GA release for the IBM System z is here. This time only one
week (8 days to be correct) later than the primary and again more closer
to primary when we count the number of available packages.

Worth noting also here is that Anaconda, the Fedora installation
program, has been extensively redesigned since Fedora 17. Documentation
is available in the Installation Guide
(http://docs.fedoraproject.org/en-US/Fedora/18/html/Installation_Guide/ch-guimode-x86.html)
and is generally applicable to Fedora for System z.

The links to the actual release are here:

http://secondary.fed...8/Fedora/s390x/

http://secondary.fed...thing/s390x/os/

and obviously on all sites that mirror the secondary arch content and we
still have few :-)

The first directory contains the normal installation trees as well as
one DVD ISO with the complete release.

Everything as usual contains, well, everything. :)


Additional information about known issues, the current progress and
state for future release, where and how the team can be reached and just
anything else Fedora on IBM System z related can be found here:

http://fedoraproject...ctures/s390x/18

For architecture specific release notes, please read it as there are
changes in the interactive installation process. It's a wiki so don't
hesitate to add your knowledge there.

Thanks go out to everyone involved in making this happen!


Your Fedora/s390x Maintainers
