Fedora Unity releases Fedora 8 Everything Spin
Posted on: 11/15/2007 09:25 PM

The Fedora Unity Project has released Fedora 8 Everything Spin:

The Fedora Unity Project is proud to announce the release of new spin,
the Everything Spin. Included in this spin are all the packages available at the time Fedora 8 was released.

The Everything spin has been long anticipated[1] and is now available for download.

The ISO images are available for i386 and x86_64 architectures starting Thursday, November 15th, 2007. This release, unlike the Everything Spin for Fedora 7[2], is made available via Jigdo[3].

We have included CD ISO image sets for those in the Fedora community that do not have DVD drives or burners available, and just because it's fun using them[4].

This spin also includes 3 DVD images for each architecture, as well as 2 DVD Dual Layer images for those who are able to use them. Please mind that the second DVD Dual Layer ISO images is actually small enough to be burned onto a normal DVD.

If you are interested in helping with the testing or mirroring efforts, please contact the Fedora Unity team.

Contact information is available at http://fedoraunity.org/ or the #fedora-unity channel on the Freenode IRC Network (irc.freenode.net).
