As everybody knows ,Fedora 12 is out, If maybe you still running the old version like Fedora 11 or 10 and you need to upgrade to fedora12, then you have to know that upgarding to this release is only possible from Fedora 11, if you are using an older version, you will need first to upgrade to Fedora11 before to go to 12.



Before to start the upgrade, remember that is important to take a look on the upgrade page of fedora before to upgrade , because you can have more advises about upgrade procedure.

Important : Make a complete backup of any important data before performing an upgrade.
