Fedora Beta 11 looks promising

7 April 2009 2 Comments

Fedora community announce the new release of the Beta 11. Leonidas (the Fedora 11 code name) come with a lot of new features and new software packages. The final release is scheduled for the end of May. One of the most important of the new features from this release is the new rpm packager 4.7 which will reduce memory consumption for complex package dependency installation. Second most important feature is the sound system from Gnome: Pulse Audio. When Ubuntu and Debian are working from some time with pulse, Fedora, only now switched to pulse audio, a very good and complex audio system what can manage almost all types of devices and types of sound systems (from oss to alsa).

Other new software what comes with Leonidas:

GNOME 2.26
Kde 4.2.1
Xfce 4.6.0
Ext4 and Btrfs fiel system
PackageKit firmware support (For video and audio codecs for your playes … sounds like ace mega codec from windows)
Windows cross compiler (mingw32-*)
gcc 4.4
NetBeans 6.5
Python 2.6
Git 1.6.2

Right now Fedora 11 is in beta and community already start to plan the features of Fedora 12 which could arrive in October this year.
