Parsidora 15 is out and can be downloaded from project's sourceforge space. It is the same as RC1, so if you have downloaded Parsidora 15 RC1, you can use it as the final version. Parsidora 15 will be available soon from some internet shops.

This version comes with the latest updates from Fedora repositories.
