Fedora 14 Now Available

The Fedora Project, a Red Hat-sponsored and community-supported open source collaboration, has announced the availability of Fedora 14, the latest version of its free open source operating system distribution.

Fedora 14 includes new features for developers, system administrators and open source enthusiasts, including framework software for Spice, an infrastructure for desktop virtualization; new debugging features for developers, such as support for dynamic/unplanned memory usage tracking and faster launch thanks to pre-generated indexes; remote and out-of-band management capabilities with Intelligent Platform Management Interface (IPMI) support; an updated tech preview of the GNOME shell environment, part of the upcoming GNOME 3.0 release; as well as others.

"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."

A complete list of Fedora 14 features is available on the Fedora community's release announcement.
