Fedora Core Fedora 8 Release Candidate 3 has been released. "Fedora 8 Release Candidate 3 has been released on the torrent site. Both DVD and Live images have been provided. Unless something goes terribly wrong, these will be the same bits (modulo gpg signed SHA1SUM files) that will go to the mirrors for the final Fedora 8 release." Update: There is an interview up about CodecBuddy's inclusion in Fedora 8 with the two developers behind this feature.

If you anyone is interested in Presto, there are working repositories available at

https://hosted.fedoraproject.org/projects/presto/

Presto is a pretty neat feature IMO. Check it out.

My understanding was that presto was going to be enabled by default in F8. I didn't think to ask if the default repos would be presto-enabled. Will they be?

Nope. The infrastructure is not yet ready. Specifically Jeremy Katz is working on setting up Koji to autogenerate deltas when the main packages are built so that you don't to have to generate them async and have a time period before the deltas are available as it is now. Will very likely be done before Fedora 9 release. Meanwhile the presto repositories are used for testing the plugin and making sure everything works well. I have been using it for a long time with zero problems.
