Fedora 30 early release leak?
« on: April 27, 2019, 05:36:45 PM »
I think I may have stumbled upon the official ISO buried in their server...


https://fedora.mirror.constant.com/fedora/linux/development/30/Workstation/x86_64/iso/

...can anyone verify this? I've already downloaded the ISO, wrote it to a flash drive, and poked around. It seems like the official new release. It would make sense given that the release date is a few days away.


*EDIT: THIS is the official BETA location...

*EDIT#2: I found this article, I think this might actually be it...

I'm gonna get this puppy installed on my test rig...I'll phone in the verdict.

Ahhh getting the release BEFORE it officially goes public.... you know it could be a mislabeled Alpha! OR worse, it could have been put there by Microsoft! You should never go sneaking around before release day... Terrible things could happen! <note my hint at sarcasm there ROFL I am sure Helga is shaking her head!>

LOL!@Spat

After a more thorough poke around, I feel pretty good about this being the official release of Fedora 30. As excited as I am for F30, it's best just to wait until the Fedora team officially announces it. After all, it's only 3 days away and anything could happen 'til then.

I have to say, however, there is a weird sort of satisfaction about jumping ahead of line. Like cutsies, but digital cutsies.
