Fedora 12 Picks Up Another Batch Of Features

,----[ Quote ]
| Going back to May before the release of Fedora 11, features that were planned 
| for Fedora 12 (the release that's codenamed Constantine) began to get laid 
| out. Among these features were LVM enhancements, replacing nash/mkinitrd with 
| Dracut, and using Empathy as the default instant messaging program. With time 
| more features have come about for Fedora 12, such as re-basing the desktop 
| environments to KDE 4.3 and GNOME 2.28, updating the kernel, etc. Over the 
| weekend though, the Fedora Project Wiki was updated to reflect a whole batch 
| of new features that are now planned for Fedora 12. Below are some of these 
| new features.         


Red Hat offers a tip of the fedora to Microsoft … oh really?



Fedora 12 release name

| The Fedora 12 release name is:
|   Constantine
| The full GPG-signed message from our election coordinator, Nigel Jones, is
| attached.  Thank you to the community for their suggestions, Josh Boyer and
| the Board for their work on additional diligence searches, and Nigel Jones
| for setting up the voting.


Fedora 12 to be named Constantine


Try installing F12 Alpha early.

| According to this posting to the fedora-test-list by Liam, there’s going to
| be some installation testing for the Fedora 12 (Constantine) Alpha candidate
| next week, on Wednesday July 29. This is a chance to shake out some of the
| new features in the Anaconda installation application that have come in over
| the past couple of months. The more testing we can get on the installer
| early, the more bulletproof we can make it for our final release by the time
| code is frozen in the fall.


Reviewed: Fedora 11

| Our verdict: Other distros are in danger of being outbuntu'd by this freedom
| loving, Gnome-centric star performer.9/10.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
