Re: Announcing Fedora 10 Alpha!

thank you.

2008/8/5 Jesse Keating <jkeating redhat com>
In an ongoing effort to prevent premature kitten death, the Fedora
Project is ecstatic to present the availability of Fedora 10 (Cambridge)
Alpha. Test now, make it better now, keep Cambridge on schedule, and
protect the kittens in the future.

The Alpha release provides the first opportunity for the wider community
to become involved with the testing of rawhide:

     * Alpha represents a sanitized snapshot of rawhide, Fedora's
       development branch, which undergoes rapid changes before
       becoming the next major release.
     * The Alpha should boot on the majority of systems, and provides:
             * A look at what new features are to be included in the
               next release
             * A way to provide feedback and bug reports to help ensure
               that the next release is as good as possible

Fedora 10 features
Some highlights of Fedora 10 Alpha:

     * Many improvements, bugfixes, and enhancements from upstream
     * New graphical boot environment
     * Wireless connection sharing
     * Audio improvements to remove glitches
     * Security audit tool
     * Improved webcam support
     * Better IR remote control support
     * RPM 4.6
     * OCaml
     * Haskell
