Official ones? I doubt it since Fedora Core 6 is EOL in December.

I got one question here. Why they don't stop this versioning and make
not just one release with the following updates rather that make such a
mess when the admins/users have to destroy their previous release and
install a new one - as the update option works poorly? The programs
grow in their mature and what is the difference between the versions:
just its mature, it is the same program, why it can not be just updated
for the existing release? Then what is the release versions - just
names - in noway related with the programs it includes, growing
themselves.

Why I do ask such a thing is the problem I have met with the support of
my existing release (6). I have even a server set up and tuned up and
to change to another release, now 8, it is a hard deal - as a lot of
now working stuff should be remade - just to satisfy a new release


I'm sure you've missed something. My current ~ dates back to when I was using RHL 7.2 or so, and comes via a period when I used Debian Woody and Sarge. Currently, I'm running Scientific Linux 5, a Tikanga clone.

There have been few problems attributable to that heritage.

It's true that there have been fresh installs from time to time, but always my ~ has been copied on without dramas.
