Fedora Core 5 Retirement

As of Monday, July 2nd 2007, Fedora Core 5 has gone into retirement. No further updates will be issued for FC5 or FE5 as we refocus our developer attention to development of F8 and maintenance of our most recent stable Fedora 7.

The Fedora Project now runs on a N+2 + 1 month support schedule. This means the supported lifetime of FC5 was scheduled to end one month after the release of F7. FC5 was supported from March 20th 2006 through July 2nd 2007, or a good ~15.5 months.

http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Releases/8/Schedule By the current Fedora 8 development schedule, the supported lifetime of FC6 is to continue to a minimum of early December 2007.
