THE FEDORA PROJECT has announced that its open source Linux operating system distribution Fedora 14 is now available.
The latest version's features include support for desktop virtualisation, dynamic memory usage, the Nokia Intel mobile device OS Meego, greater security and a preview of the Gnome 3.0 desktop shell environment release. It also supports the programming languages D, Python 2.7, Erlang R14 and the Rakudo Star implementation of Perl 6.
"I'm very proud of the work that has been put into Fedora 14," said Jared Smith, Fedora project leader. "A myriad of contributors have helped to make free and open source software more pervasive with this release."
Premiering alongside Fedora 14 is a redesign of Fedora's community-supported website, fedoraproject.org. The revised website is a culmination of work completed by the Fedora community including the design, websites, marketing, translation and infrastructure teams.
The website showcases the capabilities that Fedora offers for many different types of users, including developers, designers, general productivity users and more. It was designed and created using free and open source software that is available in the Fedora repository, and is maintained and translated by a team of contributors collaborating from around the world. µ
