Downloading it right now from a spanish mirror. Can't wait to install it on a spare partition i freed for Fedora.
I'm anxious to see if it has got better in making codec/drivers install easier and if it is possible to upgrade a Fedora 9 install via the Internet.

Just visit rpmfusion.org site, then download and install a rpm for yum setup of their repo. It's a successor to Livna and few other unofficial repositories which had codecs and similar semi-legal stuff.

I tested the new codec stuff and it more or less works, with a small hitch.

I installed the rpmfusion releases (free and non-free), and tried to play a media file. I got the message that it needed additional software. within a few clicks it found codecs, theor dependencies and installed them. However, there was still no picture, and I got an error of a missing codec.

When I tried to play that same file the second time, it now mentioned that the codec was missing, and clicking through again, it installed that one file and the video played correctly.

so, it works, but you may have to go through it twice. (I would suspect there is probably an incorrect dependency in some rpmfusion package, but I am not a developer).

Other than that, great release. Its pretty and it works.

Packagekit is also very usable and much improved over what came by default in Fedora 9 - it is starting to show its potential, something I did not really believe would happen when it was first announced over a year ago.
