Expected features in Fedora 13 Goddard

,----[ Quote ]
| boot.fedoraproject.org (BFO) is one of the 
| unique features in Fedora. This effort by 
| Fedora community hopes to completely remove DVD 
| installations in long term. It allows users to 
| download a single, tiny image and install 
| current and future versions of Fedora without 
| having to download additional images.
| This method is similar to Pxeboot, can also be 
| considered as a Fedora branded version 
| ofboot.kernel.org.


Citrix downplays Red Hat's decision to drop Xen

,----[ Quote ]
| Citrix CTO and longtime Xen proponent Simon 
| Crosby said he is unfazed by Red Hat's 
| decision to drop the Xen hypervisor from its 
| enterprise Linux software and focus its 
| virtualization efforts around the KVM 
| (Kernel-based Virtual Machine) hypervisor. 
| Crosby claims the move won't harm Xen's 
| standing in the virtualization market. 



A peek into Fedora 13beta

,----[ Quote ]
| In previous releases, I'd used GIMP to edit
| all my digital photos (remove red-eye,
| etc.) Now, I'm switching to Shotwell. It's
| that good.


Keeping up with everyone.

,----[ Quote ]
| Whenever these events happen, Ambassadors
| and Fedora community members can help
| promote our incredible community by posting
| about the events. Your blog, plus the
| Fedora Planet aggregator, are a fantastic
| way to spread the word about the event.
| Your interactions with attendees and free
| and open source software communities are
| one of the best ways to build interest and
| energy around free software.


Poulsbo packages for F12, F13 may be incoming

,----[ Quote ]
| The wonderful Olivier Blin of Mandriva has
| come through with his patches for making
| the psb video driver for Poulsbo (GMA 500)
| chipsets work on newer versions of X.org.
| He reports success â including 3D â with X
| server 1.7.


Fedora 13 coming soon!


Graphical su in Fedora


FUDCon headed to the Southwest?

,----[ Quote ]
| Well, we'd definitely like to erase that
| question mark in the title if possible,
| when it comes to the next North American
| FUDCon.


Btrfs System Rollbacks In Fedora 13

,----[ Quote ]
| One of the benefits of Btrfs besides offering
| competitive performance against other Linux
| file-systems and SSD optimizations is its
| support for sub-volumes and writable
| snapshots. While Btrfs is still in
| development and is not yet used as a default
| file-system by any Linux distribution, Red
| Hat has been looking to capitalize upon the
| capabilities of Btrfs by introducing support
| for system rollbacks into Fedora. The Btrfs-
| based system rollback support has been a
| feature for Fedora 13 so with the release of
| the Fedora 13 Beta earlier this week we
| decided to further investigate this feature.


Desktop Enhancements in Fedora 13

,----[ Quote ]
| Simple scan is also a tool to make scanning
| fast and simple. This tool is like Deja-Dup
| maintained in the launchpad.net community,
| and if you want to use an newer version of
| the program just add the PPA. I will add a
| list of PPAÂs that will be good to have when
| we got the release of Fedora 13.


Fedora 13beta mini-review

,----[ Quote ]
| But looking through the list of changes in
| Fedora 13, I'm really excited to try out DÃjÃ
| Dup. It's a new backup tool that should make
| life a lot easier. With it, you can do local
| or remote backups, including to Amazon's S3
| cloud storage. Everything is encrypted and
| compressed, and backups are such that you can
| restore from any particular snapshot.


Fedora 13 Beta Release tomorrow

,----[ Quote ]
| What are you looking forward to get in this
| new version? Gnome 2.30, KDE 4.4, Better
| Webcam support, NetBeans 6.8, Better
| Bluetooth support, Enhanced NVIDIA and
| Radeon support, Zarafa, new Upstart
| version, Automatic Print Driver
| Installation or just a more stable system
| (maybe not the first month, or?).


Allegheny first-years dive into Fedora

,----[ Quote ]
| Today, 42 first-year students at Allegheny
| College were thrown into the deep end of
| the pool on the Fedora project. Given that
| these are first-year students with no
| particular background in computing, we've
| worked closely with Mel Chua to get these
| students plugged into the Marketing and
| Design teams. This puts them in a context
| where their lack of experience as
| programmers is a benefit, as they are
| discussing and developing feature
| descriptions with developers with the
| explicit goal of making the end-result
| readable by people with no particular
| background in computing.


Fedora research survey: LAST CALL! :)

,----[ Quote ]
| As some of you may know, professors at the
| Fuqua School of Business at Duke University
| have been conducting a study of Fedora, and
| have put together an online survey based on
| interviews they conducted with several
| dozen folks from the community.


Graphics Test Week coming up: April 13th to 15th

,----[ Quote ]
| As with Fedora 12, weâre smooshing all the
| graphics card Test Days into one week to
| save space on the schedule and make
| everything feel that much more momentous.
