I was glad to see the Fedora 17 Final is declared GOLD! announcement on the Fedora devel-announce list. If all goes well, we should see the formal release on May 29.

As some of you might have noticed, I’m a fan of Xen. If you want to get Fedora 17 rolling in XenServer right now, just try my minimal kickstart. I’ll try to get a XVA/OVF-formatted image online in the next few days so you can hit the ground running if you’re in a hurry.

Check out the new Fedora 17 features and improvements and prepare yourself for the Beefy Miracle.
