Fedora 9 Preview released

Bismillaahir Rahmaanir Raheem

Alhamdulillaah, the Fedora 9 Preview has been released to the torrents! You can grab ’em here:

I’m seeding (well, that’ll be entirely true in a couple of hours) the x86_64 DVD images on both of my servers now, so there’s approximately 30Mbit/s of extra bandwidth just for those. I intend on leaving them running until the download rates creep down. This is more of a space issue than one of bandwidth, as both servers only have an 80GB hard drive, and they are themselves loaded with

I’ve been running rawhide from the Beta image for a few weeks now, and I really like it. I will probably do a fresh install from the Preview images so I can help in squishing any release-blocking bugs without the cruft from a previous install.

Anyone truly lazy and doesn’t want to do a torrent download can grab the image off of my server as long as it’s there, once the download has finished (in approximately one hour after this posting was made):

(That’s actually what I’m going to be doing myself once I get home later tonight, in shaaʾ Allaah…)

Update: The torrents have finished downloading and both are seeding.  The entire DVD ISO image should be downloadable from the above link.
