Cambridge has been launched.
After another round of hacking and coding the Fedora project just announced the release of Fedora 10. The Fedora team has been working overtime to make sure this release arrived in spite of the security issues they had earlier this year.
The highlights from the Release Summary:
- GNOME 2.24 - Instant messaging, video, time tracking, and file management improvements
- KDE 4.1.2 - many needed updates to KDE4
- LXDE - Windows like lightweight desktop environment
- Sugar Desktop (XO) - Desktop provided on the OLPC project
- New ‘Plymouth’ graphical boot system
- Language support improvements
- Printing improvements
- PulseAudio sound improvements now “glitch-free”
- Improved Webcam support
- Improved wireless network sharing
- Added/improved remote control (infrared) support
- Faster startup
- Bluetooth Improvements
- Support for EXT4 and XFS in installer
- New Empathy Instant Messenger
- Eclipse 3.4
- OpenOffice 3.0
- Kernel 2.6.27
Please user the Fedora-List mailing list or any of the forums for help. I have published my Personal Fedora 10 Installation Guide which is currently only a draft. Lots more to do!
Fedora 10 seems less like a radical update as some past versions have been. A great deal of “under the hood” improvements have been made to improve the distribution for the desktop and its many uses. Hopefully people will find it useful! A more thorough examination to follow.
