sendmail client configuration
Our fedora 5 workstation installation will contain a new sendmail client configuration as part of the continuing department email infrastructure upgrade process. This should be completely transparent to users. I announce this here simply to notify users that if they notice a problem or unexpected email behavior when sending email from a fedora 5 workstation it should be reported to labstaff so it can be addressed promptly. The configuration has now been installed on the two beta machines for testing before deployment. note: If your email client does not automatically append a fully qualified domain name (FQDN) to email addresses before sending mail you should consider updating your local aliases to include them ('somebody@somewhere.com' rather that just 'somebody'). In most cases the sendmail service will attempt to figure it out for you when mailing to local addresses but it is better practice to explicitly provide it.

Pre-deployment Testing and Observations

gcc version changes
Fedora Core 3 uses gcc 3.4.4 but Fedora Core 5 will upgrade gcc to version 4.1. While testing recompilation of your source code here is a link to the changes, features, and fixes you'll find in gcc 4.1 http://gcc.gnu.org/gcc-4.1/changes.html
