Fedora 11 Released
After numerous delays the Red Hat-financed open source project Fedora has released its Linux distro in version 11.
Changes include the usual desktop updates like Gnome 2.26 and KDE 4.2 and the kernel 184.108.40.206. Yet the decision to make ext4 the default file system ensures some real innovations. One of the improved programs is the Anaconda installer for which the storage component was completely rewritten.
Boot time is always an issue with Linux users. Fedora 11 promises a start time of 20 seconds.
Fedora developers have also refreshed visualization possibilities, advancing performance of the interactive console, the wizard for creating virtual guests and SE Linux support for guest security. With the Windows cross compiler MinGW, Fedora 11 has a developer environment that will be a joy to those developers at home in both the Linux and Windows worlds.
