No; six(ish) months from release,  IIRC.  F12 is about to go EOL, F14 is 
fairly new and F13 seems to be reasonably mature.  Axel is hopeful of 
getting 0.24 going on CentOS 5 soon and had 0.24 packages for RHEL 6 
Beta.  So 0.24 on CentOS 6 may also be along quite soon, but long-term 
support for v4l there is still a bit uncertain.  That's my 
understanding, anyway.
