[News] Fedora 10 Reviewed; Spotlight on Network Manager in Fedora

Hash: SHA1

Moving on: 64bit Linux, PulseAudio, Fedora 10 and so on

,----[ Quote ]
| The overall impression of Fedora 10 is very good. Most bugs I encountered 
| running the Beta version are fixed - except for a strange coding problem, but 
| I will survive that one.  
| Also, my first move into the lands of 64bit are also far less complicated 
| than expected. Your mileage may vary, depending on the used proprietary 
| software, but then again kvm might be a solution to work around that problem.  


Video: Spotlight on Network Manager

| Today’s installment of Spotlight On features Dan Williams discussing Network 
| Manager. Dan explains how the Fedora community designed Network Manager to 
| make network configuration less of a hassle–now getting onto the internet is 
| easier than ever before.   



The KMS, Plymouth Experience In Fedora 10

,----[ Quote ]
| Fedora generally lives on the bleeding-edge of free software packages --
| especially when it comes to the Linux kernel and X.Org -- and with
| yesterday's release of Fedora 10 Cambridge this is no different. Fedora 9 was
| the first of the major distributions to integrate any level of kernel
| mode-setting support (A Preview of Kernel-based Mode-Setting) and this
| support has been well-extended in this latest Red Hat release.


Fedora does FIPS

,----[ Quote ]
| Version 10 of Fedora, codenamed Cambridge, might be of interest to federal
| agencies. It includes Python bindings for Federal Information Processing
| Standard 140, developed by the Mozilla Foundation. Developers could use those
| bindings to rapidly build encryption-based applications.


Fedora 10 proves infrastructure matter

,----[ Quote ]
| Fedora 10 is the first release of any distribution in a long time that has
| actually felt like an upgrade to me. With more hardware detected, increased
| performance, and improved interfaces, Fedora 10 is an unusually strong
| release, with tantalizing hints of even better to come.


Ten Reasons to Get Fired Up Over Fedora 10 Part 1

,----[ Quote ]
| Over the next week we plan to post a series of blogs that explore ten
| examples from around our community, of people making a difference to free
| software through their work in Fedora. These are just ten of the many reasons
| you’ll want to fire up Fedora 10 and take it for a spin on your system. We’ll
| dive into some of the cool features that have been developed in this release,
| as well as some of the advances that have spread throughout the Fedora
| community. We’ll show off the collaboration that happens between volunteer
| contributors and Red Hat’s engineering staff to advance free software. And
| you’ll see why Fedora leads the pack in providing the future first.


Fedora 10 Cambridge Released

,----[ Quote ]
| Following several months in development, Red Hat has just released Fedora 10
| (codenamed Cambridge). A number of new Red Hat innovations can be found in
| this release, such as Plymouth, and there are many updated packages such as
| those from X.Org and the Linux kernel. In this article are some screenshots
| from Fedora 10 final along with some of the other features that make up the
| tenth release of this very popular Linux distribution.


Fedora 10: the GNU/Linux Desktop Steps Forward

,----[ Quote ]
| Any release of a GNU/Linux distribution marks a milestone in a continuous
| cycle of software development. However, Fedora 10 promises to be a larger
| milestone than most, both for its development community and users, according
| to Paul W. Frields, the Fedora leader and chair.


Mind Maps: The Fedora Project

,----[ Quote ]
| Recently, I’ve been plagued with trying to come up with an organizational
| model for the Utah Open Source Foundation and it’s relationship to the Utah
| Open Source Conference.  This is in addition to the new Non-Profit structure
| we’re building.
| To that end, I created a very shabby hierarchical structure which I passed
| around a week ago at the Core Team after conference dinner.  It went over
| okay, but people had a lot of questions about how the structure was organized
| and what not.


Defending the flame of Linux freedom

,----[ Quote ]
| Max Spevack: More or less my entire job is Red Hat community management, and
| Fedora is the shining example of Red Hat's community work. Part of my job
| also is to make sure that Red Hat participates in non-Fedora communities, so
| I spend like 75–80% of my time on Fedora and the other 20% of my time on more
| general community business.


The best laid plans, No. 73.

,----[ Quote ]
| I was going to spend some time tonight writing a big warm and fuzzy blog post
| about looking forward to Fedora 10 and all the good times ahead. That would
| have been awesome.
| [...]
| I think the worst part is that I’ve spent 9 months building up a nice,
| healthy covering of beautiful, colorful free software boosterism on my
| laptop’s lid, and I’ll have to kiss it all goodbye. Maybe the folks at Dell
| will get a kick out of it and give the lid a good home on one of their
| machines… Or maybe they’ll make a “mistake” and send the lid on a unit going
| to Redmond.


Red Hat Fedora Claims It's the Leader in Linux

,----[ Quote ]
| Red Hat's Fedora community Linux distribution has now tallied its user base,
| and it's a number that on the surface would make it the largest installed
| base of any Linux distribution, with at least 9.5 million users and possibly
| as many as 10.5 million.


Fedora 11 Release Schedule, Along With Five Features

,----[ Quote ]
| Fedora 10 isn't even being released until next week, but five features have
| already been approved for Fedora 11 and a release schedule has been put in
| motion. FESCo, or the Fedora Engineering Steering Committee, convened
| yesterday and approved the Fedora 11 release schedule (though it's likely to
| change as with all past releases) and approved five of the proposed Fedora
| features.
| The five features that are marked to be introduced in Fedora 11 include
| DeviceKit integration, improved volume controls, Windows cross-compiler
| support, Presto plug-in integration, and simple support for setting up a
| multi-seat system.


Fedora 10 (Cambridge) coming soon - and a release party to boot!

,----[ Quote ]
| And I am already running Fedora 10.  It’s stable, powerful and most of all,
| built from free software!  Also, I’m in charge of creating the Media for
| North America this release.  We’ve already pre-purchased x86 live media and
| plan to produce similar amounts of x86_64 live CDs as well as both x86 and
| x86_64 install DVDs.  It’s exciting because they should be to my house by
| early to mid-December!  Distribution plans are commencing as well, so keep
| your ear to the ground.


Upcoming Fedora 10 Release Has Style and Substance

,----[ Quote ]
| These are good times for Linux users. Ubuntu's 8.10 release recently went
| live, Fedora's 10 release is coming up in mere weeks, and openSUSE will
| finalize its 11.1 offering in December. Even if none of these distributions
| are your first choice for daily use, they are popular and are frequently
| worth checking out on liveCD, even if you plan to continue using your current
| distribution.


Fedora 10 Prepares For Development Freeze

,----[ Quote ]
| The release date for Fedora 10 (codenamed Cambridge) is less than one month
| away and as a result this Red Hat distribution will go into a development
| freeze beginning Tuesday. The Fedora 10 Beta occurred in late September, but
| over the course of the past month there have been three snapshot releases. In
| the third and final snapshot that was released this past week there are new
| improvements to this popular Linux distribution along with a new desktop
| background and better integrated version of Plymouth to greet its users. We
| have also recorded a new video showing the enhanced start-up process via
| kernel-based mode-setting.



23,000 Linux PCs forge education revolution in Philippines

,----[ Quote ]
| Providing high school students with PCs is seen as a first step to preparing
| them for a technology-literate future, but in the Philippines many schools
| cannot afford to provide computing facilities so after a successful
| deployment of 13,000 Fedora Linux systems from a government grant, plans are
| underway to roll out another 10,000 based on Ubuntu.


Khadi Board visits the GNU/Linux installfest at Technopark today ..

,----[ Quote ]
| We at the installfest were
| lucky enough to have that heady feeling that accompanies a picture of
| FOSS working its magic and people benefitting from it. Today we had a visit
| from Khadi board.
| Khadi board has been using Fedora and Ubuntu to run their office for quiet
| sometime now.


Omega 10 Desktop Linux

,----[ Quote ]
| The Red Hat community engineer behind the Fedora Games and Fedora Xfce media
| spins, Rahul Sundaram, had announced the release of Omega 10 Beta this past
| weekend. Omega is a desktop/mobile Linux distribution that is based upon
| Fedora but includes packages from the Livna RPM repository. The Omega 10 Beta
| release is roughly equivalent to the Fedora 10 Beta to be released tomorrow,
| but integrates multimedia support not found in Fedora along with delivering
| other added functionality.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
