EXTRA! EXTRA! Read all about it!

In today's edition of the Herbertville Chronicle, read all about the
second test release of Fedora Core 4!

Raleigh, NC (HC) - The Fedora Project today announced the second test
release of Fedora Core 4, bringing new technology to Linux users
everywhere, and the first release of Fedora Core to support PPC
out of the box.

Designed as a general purpose operating system for a variety of
uses, Fedora Core 4 Test 2 offers various improvements over Fedora
Core 3. People who have used Test 1 will notice the following
improvements:

- GNOME updated to 2.10 final
- KDE updated to 3.4.0 final
- Firefox updated to 1.0.2
- OpenOffice.org update to 1.9.89
- many various bugfixes

Users were cautioned against using Fedora Core Test 2 in production
environments. Reminding the users that it's a test release, Otto
said "There's no guarantee that it won't eat your data or fail to
install. It could even cause an alien takeover of your humble town."
