[News] Fedora GNU/Linux 10 is Released

Hash: SHA1

Fedora 10 released, brimming with new features

,----[ Quote ]
| It's time for me to wear my special hat again. The Fedora developer community 
| has announced the official release of Fedora 10, a new version of the popular 
| open source Linux distribution. This release is a promising step forward for 
| Fedora and it introduces some important new features and technologies that 
| bring more robustness and usability to the desktop user experience.    


Fedora 10 - Fire it up

,----[ Quote ]
| Fedora is a Linux-based operating system that showcases the latest in free 
| and open source software. Fedora is always free for anyone to use, modify, 
| and distribute. It is built by people across the globe who work together as a 
| community: the Fedora Project. The Fedora Project is open and anyone is 
| welcome to join.    


Fedora 10 Lays Out Roadmap For the Future of Open Source Computing

,----[ Quote ]
| The Fedora Project, a Red Hat (NYSE: RHT) sponsored and community-supported 
| open source collaboration project, today announced the availability of Fedora 
| 10, the latest version of its free open source operating system distribution. 
| Fedora 10 features numerous leading-edge technologies and continues to lay 
| the groundwork for derivative open source distributions throughout the 
| enterprise.      


Rock-solid Fedora 10 brings salvation to Ubuntu weary

,----[ Quote ]
| Once installed, we booted into GNOME where, as always, Fedora opts for a more 
| minimal package collection than most other distros. We prefer it this way 
| since a fresh Ubuntu install generally requires about 20 minutes of package 
| deleting before we feel at home. With Fedora's approach you can simply head 
| to the RPMs and install what you'd like.    


Fedora 10 debuts with nips, tucks

,----[ Quote ]
| One more thing of note. A year ago, the Fedora Project made it easier for 
| people to join the project and participate, moving from a largely Red 
| Hat-controlled body of around 1,900 people to what has become a 17,000-strong 
| body of contributors to the Fedora cause.    


Fedora 10 Out, Packed With Improvements

,----[ Quote ]
| The release also bundles in OpenOffice 3.0, the most recent edition of the 
| open-source productivity suite. 


Red Hat's winning Fedora 10 Linux arrives

,----[ Quote ]
| What's the best thing of all though about these, and many more new features 
| I'll tell you about later, is that they all work smoothly and seamlessly 
| together. Fedora 10 is what a cutting edge Linux distribution should be.   


Worsed than damned lies?



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) 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.


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.


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)
