The Fedora development community announced the official release of Fedora 14, the new version of one of the most popular Linux-distributions, sponsored by Red Hat and supported by the community, – Fedora 14, codenamed Laughlin.
This release is a bit light on user-facing changes, but adds some useful features for developers. Some of the key changes in Fedora 14:
* Spice – Spice aims to provide a complete open source solution for interaction with virtualized desktops and provides high-quality remote access to QEMU virtual machines.
* Mobility options – This release includes software from the MeeGo™ project which is designed to support platforms such as netbooks, nettops, and various embedded devices.
* Amazon EC2 – For the first time since Fedora 8, Fedora will release on the EC2 cloud.
* D Compiler – Support for D, a systems programming language. Its focus is on combining the power and high performance of C and C++ with the programmer productivity of modern languages like Ruby and Python.
You can download the Fedora 14 installable Live CD image from the project’s website. A number of other variants are also available, including a KDE-based Live CD and a full DVD installer. For more details, you can refer to the official Fedora 14 release notes.
