Versions

  • Fedora Core 1 - Yarrow Released on November 6, 2003, “Yarrow” was the first version of Fedora Core. It was built on the 2.4.19 kernel and was the latest version of Red Hat with a 2.4 kernel.
  • Fedora Core 2 - Tettnang Released on May 18, 2004, “Tettnang” was released. It was the first GNU/Linux distribution to include a 2.6 branch kernel. Fedora Core 2 is prone to a number of problems: firstly, it is difficult to install proprietary drivers, such as those of Nvidia, since the 4KSTACK option
  • Fedora Core 3 - Heidelberg The release of “Heidelberg” on 8 November 2004 confirmed the popularity of distribution among users. It runs in kernel 2.6.9 and GNOME 2.8, and also features Firefox, allowing a name transition from Mozilla. This release marks the first step backwards for the Bluecurve visual environment, which is a composite between two major desktops: GNOME and KDE. Fedora Core 3 is the basis for RHEL 4.
  • Fedora Core 4 - Stentz Released on June 13, 2005 “Stentz” was the first distribution compiled with a new version of GCC, which significantly improved its performance. The disadvantage of this update is that all packages must be rebuilt. Trust in the “Extras” repository is clearly demonstrated.
  • Fedora Core 5 - Bordeaux The March 20, 2006 release, “Bordeaux”, was the first release to feature mono and mono-based features, such as Beagle, F-Spot and Tomboy.
