Just keep updating and you will have Fedora 18 final. Nothing more is needed.

The beta became the production version. You will probably note that the files in
/etc/yum.repos.d which control where to search for new updates has symbolic
(variables that may be substituted).
On Jan 15th, the symbolic parameters were changed to point to the new locations where the updated software resides. Your yum update or software update (via mouse) will pickup all the new values.

Decide if you want testing directories for now. If you do not, edit the corresponding repro file and change the enable=1 to enable=0

Thanks Leslie,
as yuo indicated previously, I had enabled testing repos, but now I'm disabling them so I can only update from "production" ones.
It's strange, but now I have just updated OpenJDK submitting YUM UPDATE, Is it correct?
I'm having a lot of problems with the video controller and guessed they'll be solved with this
