Updated manually (mirrors seem not to have the update yet) and rebooted my Fedora 30 x86_64 laptop. It all looks fine, even using akmod-nvidia from rpm-fusion.

Looks good on a VirtualBox VM

For me, everything seems ok. I also did the regression tests, they passed except for modsign and libhugetlfbs that were skipped. Tested on a VM.

works for me on Intel i5-3550 and Intel i5-3470 with prop. nvidia-driver from rpmfusion nd VirtualBox 6.0.8 from Oracle. @kernel-team: Thank you for the very fast reaction.

This update causes my bluetooth keyboard to fail connection. 5.0.14-300 works fine, this just doesn't. It's hard to get debug information when connection is not possible.

Same exact issue as bjr with a bluetooth mouse. GNOME Bluetooth tray icon flashes on and off rapidly as the connection fails.

The bluetooth problems appear to be a common issue. There's a thread on reddit with some more info:
