Fedora 10 Beta: Cambridge's foundations are laid

Just on the heels of the Fedora Project's fifth anniversary, the Beta of
Fedora Linux version 10 (code-named Cambridge) is now available:


There is also a Beta contest! Test five things in the Beta that are
important to you as a user. If you find a bug *and* report it, you get
the free attention of a package maintainer on a problem personally
important to you!


Do your part to make Fedora 10 that much better.

Among the new, fun, and interesting features:

      * New NetworkManager with connection sharing
      * Improved printer handling
      * Remote virtualization and easier virt storage
      * Sectool, an auditing and security testing framework
      * RPM 4.6, the first big RPM change in several years

... and more ...

      * New version of PackageKit for managing software, with more fixes
        and enhancements (which benefits all distributions)
      * New version of PulseAudio (which benefits all distributions)
      * Kernel 2.6.27, including better support for WiFi

Any chance of getting support for the Atheros L1E NIC in there? The Linux driver comes with the ASUS P5Q-SE/R board, for their "Express" Linux, and appears to be GPL. The reviews on the Newegg site say that OpenSuSE-11 supports the NIC out of the box, so if the license is okay perhaps Fedora users won't have to hand build a kernel.
