Well, so it was released as a birthday present for me :-)
I can say wit a lot of very intresting new features,
Check release notes here:
And some highlights :
- -The mac80211 (formerly called Devicescape) wireless stack has been
integrated with the kernel.
Jeeha, wireless will likely work now :-)
- -This release of Fedora includes Liberation fonts, which are metric
equivalents for several well-known proprietary fonts found throughout the
This essentially means that them ttf font sets available from for (free)
download but are not "free" , have been replaced with really free fonts. Well
- -Fedora now integrates the experimental nouveau driver within Xorg
this is very very intresting, these drivers are slated to replace the
non-free 3d accelerated drivers for Nvidia. I would like to try this out on
the installfest with suitable hardware.
- - A new comprehensive graphical administration tool for SELinux,
system-config-selinux is available by default in this release.
A long long awaited addition directly from redhat. Finally it would be more
humane to deal with seLinux beyond the shut_it_off solution :-)
Ok, so i will not spoil everything :-)
I will start downloading after the post, i should have the iso by the end of
today ... anyone needing a copy is welcome.
