here are the release notes ! *well part of them anyway :)

2.1. What Has Changed Since Fedora Core 4

This release is the culmination of nine months of development, and includes significant new versions of many key products and technologies. The following sections provide a brief overview of major changes from the last release of Fedora Core.
2.1.1. Desktop

Some of the highlights of this release include:

*

There is a completely revamped appearance with a bubbly new theme and the first use of the new Fedora logo.
*

Early work from the Fedora Rendering Project is integrated into the desktop. This new project (http://fedoraproject...enderingProject) is going to provide the technical foundations for advanced desktop interfaces based on OpenGL.
*

Popular desktop environments GNOME and KDE have innovative new versions included in this release. The GNOME desktop is based on the 2.14 release (http://www.gnome.org...vyd/gnome-2-14/), and the KDE 3.5 desktop is the general 3.5 release (http://kde.org/annou...nnounce-3.5.php).
*

The latest versions of GNOME Power Manager (http://www.gnome.org...-power-manager/) and GNOME Screensaver(http://live.gnome.or...omeScreensaver/) provide new and integrated power management capabilities.
*

The new GNOME User Share facility provides simple and efficient file sharing.
*

Suspend to RAM support has also been improved due to infrastructure work done by the hibernate support.
*

The previous graphical software management utilities have been replaced with the first versions of a new generation of tools. This release includes Pup, a simple interface for system updates, and Pirut, a new package manager that replaces system-config-packages. These build on the yum utility, to provide consistent software installation and update facilities throughout the system.
*

This release of Fedora includes Mono support for the first time, and Mono applications such as Beagle, a desktop search interface; F-Spot, a photo management utility; and Tomboy, a note-taking application.
*

You can now enjoy enhanced multimedia support with version 0.10 of the Gstreamer media framework. This milestone release brings major improvements in robustness, compatibility, and features, over previous versions of Gstreamer. The Totem movie player and other media software in this release have been updated to use the new framework.
*

There is dramatically improved internationalization support with SCIM in Fedora Core 5. The SCIM language input framework provides an easy to use interface for inputting many different non-English languages. SCIM replaces the IIIMF system used in previous Fedora releases.
*

The default Web browser is Firefox 1.5 (http://www.mozilla.c...leases/1.5.html), which has many new features for faster, safer, and more efficient browsing.
*

The office applications suite OpenOffice.org 2.0 (http://www.openoffic...duct/index.html) now makes better use of general system libraries for increased performance and efficiency.
*

A large number of GTK and GNOME programs take advantage of the Cairo 2D graphics library (http://cairographics.org/), included in this release, to provide streamlined attractive graphical interfaces.
*

There are new experimental drivers that provide support for the widely-used Broadcom 43xx wireless chipsets (http://bcm43xx.berlios.de/).
*

This release includes libnotify, a library that features simple and attractive notifications for the desktop.
*

Fedora Core 5 now uses gnome-mount, a more efficient mechanism that replaces fstab-sync, and uses HAL to handle mounting.
*

Printing support is improved in this release with the inclusion of the hplip utility, which replaces hpijs.

post installation screenshots - http://linux-noob.com/screenshots/fedora/5/post/

The new distro is called bordeaux
The kernel is 2.6.15-1.2054_FC5

[root@localhost ~]# uname -ar
Linux localhost.localdomain 2.6.15-1.2054_FC5 #1 Tue Mar 14 15:48:33 EST 2006 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux


oh and its lovely :)

things to note:-


* until the rest of the official fedora mirrors are open, yum will not work at all, same goes for 'add/remove software applet in the gnome drop down menu (in applications)

* Xorg does not display the resolution correctly on Intel 915GM (integrated video) chipset, so for example if you have a fairly new notebook and it's got that chipset and a 1400x1050 LCD then you'll be stuck with 1024x768 resolution - perhaps the following workaround for Suse 10 may work [confirmed working]

* The Intel 2200 wireless chipset (commonly referred to as Centrino) are identified in system-config-network BUT listed as an ETH device and not as a wireless device.... so try the following Intel wireless driver guide for fedora core 5 to get things working

* to add the MP3 plugin to XMMS do the following

* the default kernel provided with FCR5 doesnt like non-GPL modules and as a result your nVidia and ATI drivers won't install properly, to fix, download the following updated kernel (2059 kernel)



cheers !

I can confirm that this fix did work on my FC5 using 945 chipset.

* Xorg does not display the resolution correctly on Intel 915GM (integrated video) chipset, so for example if you have a fairly new notebook and it's got that chipset and a 1400x1050 LCD then you'll be stuck with 1024x768 resolution - perhaps the following workaround for Suse 10 may work, i will verify later and report back here
