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.        


Ubuntu 8.10 Release Candidate Screenshot Tour

,----[ Quote ]
| The release candidate version of the upcoming Ubuntu 8.10 (codename Intrepid 
| Ibex), which is scheduled for launch in late October this year, arrived a few 
| hours ago and, as usual, we intend to keep you up-to-date with the latest 
| changes in the Ubuntu 8.10 development. Compared with the beta release, which 
| brought Firefox 3.0.3, PAM authentication framework and a BBC plugin for 
| Totem, this version comes with two brand new and useful tools: a System 
| Cleaner and a USB Startup Disk Creator.      



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)
