This is a little bit of a “fluff” post to satisfy those readers that are hitting my blog based on the title of a post in April 2009 (before the Fedora 12 Schedule was even finalized) who maybe disappointed by what they find there.  Fedora 12 is still under development.  Its planned release date is November 17,2009.  If you want a sneak peak, the Fedora 12 Beta will be released on October 20, 2009.  It will be available at Fedora’s pre-release download location.

Here are some important Fedora 12 links you might be looking for:

Or maybe you are looking for some ways to help out.  There is never a shortage of things to do in Fedora.  Helping out can mean working on something that is not your area of technical expertise, but makes everyone else’s lives easier.  Just today I helped call out the bugs for the Fedora 12 Beta Blocker review meeting.  I announced the meeting and helped facilitate the note taking and bug updating, but I can honestly say that none of my technical knowledge (or lack thereof) was used.

If you want to get involved, there are lots of choices in a variety of areas.

On the other hand if you just want to download the latest version of Fedora, that would be Fedora 11.

If you don’t want to download Fedora, but plan to be at LinuxCon next week (September 21-23, 2009) in lovely Portland, Oregon–visit the Fedora Booth and we’ll hook you up there!  Even if you already have Fedora, stop by and say hello.
