Fedora 13 final 版将推迟到5月25号发布


又跳票了啊,来自Fedora List的pipermail显示,原计划18号发布的Fedora 13 final 版将推迟一个星期到5月25号发布!

The F13 final readiness meeting, also known as the “go/no-go” meeting,was held this evening.  As the meeting notes indicate, there are bugs
remaining on the blocker list:


According to the release criteria[1], the decision was made to slip the release of Fedora 13 by one week, to Tuesday 2010-05-25.

During composition of any further release candidates, the Fedora Release Engineering and Quality Assurance teams plan to be
conservative in accepting fixes for the release, and will limit these to blocker items and critical fixes.

The Fedora 13 release schedule[2] has been updated to reflect the new release date.  We regret any inconvenience to the community.  Thank you for your patience as we try to ensure the best possible Fedora release.

Fedora 14开发代号、发布进程公布:

Fedora 14的开发代号有六个候选者,经过社区投票后“Laughlin” 成为最后的赢家,一共获得了610 票,也延续了Fedora近年来以物理学家作为代号的传统。此前被认为可能性最大的Fytnargin反 而相当冷清,只有403票,其他还有Laramie 594票、Ventnor 570票、Mitikas 482票、Hoppin 459票。

Laughlin来自著名的理论物理学家Robert B. Laughlin,1950年生于美国加里佛尼亚 州,1998年荣膺诺贝尔物理奖,主要贡献是解释了分数量子霍尔效应,还提出了“整体大于部分之和”的概念,Fedora也正是取自这个寓意,代表它不仅 仅是开源软件的简单组合。
新系统将包括最新的Linux技术,包括尚未发布的Linux Kernel 2.6.34、X.Org Server 1.9、GNOME 3.0、GCC 4.5等等。

Fedora 14 Laughlin的具体发布日程为:
