Fedora 9 Beta released

Mensagens Recomendadas

Ah, spring... when a young penguin's fancy lightly turns to thoughts

of... Beta testing!  Yes, spring has sprung, and so has the Beta release

of Fedora 9!

The Beta release is the point at which we really want and need the wider

community's help with testing.  Beta is a point of much greater

stability in Fedora's development branch, but some fixes continue to

occur to improve usability, performance, and stability.  This release is

great for early adopters and Linux enthusiasts!  The Fedora 9 Beta boots

on the majority of systems, and gives you an idea of how the final

Fedora 9 will look and feel.  Most importantly, we absolutely need

community assistance to check features and provide feedback and bug

reports, to help ensure that Fedora 9 is our best release ever.

Some highlights of Fedora 9 Beta:

* GNOME 2.22, with new features like a helpful world time clock, better

file system performance, security improvements, power management at the

login screen, the ability to dynamically configure displays, better

Bluetooth integration, improved podcast support, and many other


* KDE 4.0.2, which includes a brand new desktop and panel with many new

concepts, integrated desktop search, a brand new visual style called

Oxygen, a new multimedia API called Phonon, and a new hardware

integration framework called Solid -- all integrated by Fedora's KDE SIG

* Firefox 3 Beta 5, featuring a native look and feel, desktop

integration, the new Places that replaces bookmarks, and a reworked

address bar

* Support for resizing ext2, ext3 and NTFS partitions during install

* Support for creating and installing to encrypted filesystems

* PackageKit, a cross-distribution package management solution with a

complete yum backend, designed to unify different distributions'

software management with the latest technologies

* Kernel 2.6.25-rc5

And numerous other improvements and enhancements.
