Interview: Fedora developers Seth Vidal and Will Woods

,----[ Quote ]
| Once testing starts, is there a lot of work to be done on the technology
| before it’s ready for Fedora 9, or are you quite happy with its current
| status? Are there more features you’d like to see get added, either in the
| Fedora 9 time frame or beyond?
|
| Seth Vidal: There are always more features.
|
| Will Woods: There’s a couple of bugfixes and some UI improvements on the
| roadmap for 1.0 (which we plan to release in time for Fedora 9).

Fedora 9 feature preview - kernel modesetting

,----[ Quote ]
| So F9 will be released in a few weeks so I thought I'd mention a neat
| semi-hidden feature preview.
|
| F9 will contain a preview of the future kernel based modesetting architecture
| for users of Intel 915 and above.
|
| [...]
|
| So far it just enters graphics mode when udev hits, and the X server should
| use the new modesetting architecture from then on. In theory it should give
| nearly flicker free startup from udev until login and X should start much
| faster.

| A while ago I started development of special branch of PulseAudio which is
| called glitch-free. In a few days I will merge it back to PulseAudio trunk,

Fedora 9 Beta - my review

,----[ Quote ]
| I have been wanting to try out Fedora 9 ever since I read in an interview
| with the project leaders about 2 months ago that it was going with a KDE4
| default desktop (as far as I can tell, no other distribution has taken the
| plunge). Now Fedora is an interesting beast… it gets little press these days
| yet it has been consistently in the top ten at distrowatch for years, and
| high in the top ten too.

Fedora 9 Beta review

,----[ Quote ]
| In one sentence: so far so amazing! It’s now stable and completely usable.
| I now have a workable F9 system ( rawhide ) which I use daily. No more F8!!!
| Though we have yet ( one week ) to see the final artwork, but it’s still
| amazing.
