[edit] Fedora 17 GA is now released

This page is now obsolete. The final GA for Fedora 17 ARM is available here: http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Architectures/ARM/Fedora_17_GA

[edit] Fedora 17 ARM Beta

Just in time for the summer fireworks season, we are pleased to announce the beta release of Fedora 17 for ARM is now available for download from:

http://dl.fedoraproject.org/pub/fedora-secondary/releases/test/17-Beta/Images/

[edit] What is the Beta release?

The beta release is the last important milestone of Fedora 17 for ARM. Included are prebuilt images for QEMU, Trimslice, Beagleboard XM and iMX based hardware platforms. In our final stage of development the ARM team will focus on a few remaining issues with the Pandaboard kernel, and our final release will include support for this popular device. We invite you to join us in making Fedora 17 for ARM a solid release by downloading, testing, and providing your valuable feedback.
