Fans of the Fedora distribution will be happy to see that
Fedora Core 5 Bordeaux
has been released. The announcement on fedoranews.com is a little weird(and Im being polite), I guess it seemed like a good idea at the time!
So whats new in FC5?
- GNOME 2.14
- OpenOffice 2.0.2
- KDE 3.5.1
- Mono support plus applications (F-Spot, Beagle and tomboy)
- Xen Virtualization
- Apache HTTP Server 2.2
- Enhanced SELinux support
- Kernel support for Broadcom 43xx wireless chipsets
DVD and CD images are available for download via traditional HTTP/FTP
or via bittorrent (very
fast). If you want a preview before downloading
a 3GB image then take a look at this screencast.
I havent been too impressed with the recent releases of
Fedora, personally favouring Ubuntu; still when I have a little spare time Illinstall this latest offering and see how it squares up.
