Fedora 10 Prepares For Development Freeze

,----[ Quote ]
| The release date for Fedora 10 (codenamed Cambridge) is less than one month
| away and as a result this Red Hat distribution will go into a development
| freeze beginning Tuesday. The Fedora 10 Beta occurred in late September, but
| over the course of the past month there have been three snapshot releases. In
| the third and final snapshot that was released this past week there are new
| improvements to this popular Linux distribution along with a new desktop
| background and better integrated version of Plymouth to greet its users. We
| have also recorded a new video showing the enhanced start-up process via
| kernel-based mode-setting.

Ubuntu 8.10 Release Candidate Screenshot Tour

,----[ Quote ]
| The release candidate version of the upcoming Ubuntu 8.10 (codename Intrepid
| Ibex), which is scheduled for launch in late October this year, arrived a few
| hours ago and, as usual, we intend to keep you up-to-date with the latest
| changes in the Ubuntu 8.10 development. Compared with the beta release, which
| brought Firefox 3.0.3, PAM authentication framework and a BBC plugin for
| Totem, this version comes with two brand new and useful tools: a System
| Cleaner and a USB Startup Disk Creator.

| Providing high school students with PCs is seen as a first step to preparing

| cannot afford to provide computing facilities so after a successful
| deployment of 13,000 Fedora Linux systems from a government grant, plans are
| underway to roll out another 10,000 based on Ubuntu.

Omega 10 Desktop Linux

,----[ Quote ]
| The Red Hat community engineer behind the Fedora Games and Fedora Xfce media
| spins, Rahul Sundaram, had announced the release of Omega 10 Beta this past
| weekend. Omega is a desktop/mobile Linux distribution that is based upon
| Fedora but includes packages from the Livna RPM repository. The Omega 10 Beta
| release is roughly equivalent to the Fedora 10 Beta to be released tomorrow,
| but integrates multimedia support not found in Fedora along with delivering
| other added functionality.
