Fedora 11 Will Have An Incredible Number Of New Features

Fedora 10, an amazing Fedora release in its own right, had 28 approved features. Fedora 9 had 30 and Fedora 8 had 21.

As of writing this Fedora 11 has 51 which have already been approved, plus another 9 waiting to be approved any day now. That means in the end there should be ~60 approved features which make it into Fedora 11! This doesn’t even count the work going into external things such as overhauling the documentation or the community work going into the Moksha project.

The features on the list aren’t trivial either, take a look. Almost every aspect of the OS is having some substantial work going into it.  You name it, boot time, instant messaging, delta RPMs, 64 bit kernel in 32 bit system, the media player, networking, security, KMS for nearly all open source drivers, compilers, etc.. will be seeing a lot of new love. (Much more than just upgrades) This list will have other distros playing catchup for some time to come.

So, show your appreciation by testing the new release.  It may be best to start with the upcoming beta to be released on March 24, so mark your calendars.  Even better, in addition to testing sign up and become a part of the Fedora Project.  You won’t regret it, the community and innovation you will come across will never be matched anywhere.  Guaranteed. 🙂

    Nowości w Fedorze…

    Fedora 11 zapowiada się zdecydowanie ekscytująco. Być może ekscytowanie się kwestiami oprogramowania jest delikatną przesadą, jednak w tej konkretnej sytuacji pewne niecierpliwe wyczekiwanie, połączone z lekkim dreszczykiem emocji, wydaje s[…..

    and still endless command line rubbish to install applications. rubbish.

  5. Fedora user Says:

    Not really that amazing….
    I’ve been using Red Hat since the early days, and been frustrated by the quality of the product. I haven’t found a single release that could be used just out-of-the-box. All of them had some major issues with the basic things like touchpad mouse, wifi, etc.

    Yeah, here comes the ‘cutting-edge’ crap. Concentrate on quality, then to sqeeze new and untested applications into the release!

  6. Chris Says:

    Unfortunately fedora is not meant to be the “quality” release, thats RHEL.

  7. Michael Mellinger Says:

    Fedora is a great Linux release. They’ve really gotten their act together in the past couple of releases. For a while, I had switched to Ubuntu but now I’m back.

  8. Joseph Smidt Says:

    I think you will find that the quality of each Fedora release has noticeably improved. Fedora has made some big innovations in the QA sector. Fedora 10 was a really solid release, which is probably why it has noticed 115% greater adoption then Fedora 9.

    I believe you will find Fedora 11 will be a very high quality release, even more solid than Fedora 10.

  9. Frank Says:

    New features are great but I’m worried about instability when a large number of features find their way in. With Ubuntu’s bug list growing daily I’m beginning to think its time to move on. A lot of unresolved bugs still affect me more than a year after they were originally posted.

    I’ll look into Fedora 11 but quite frankly I’m getting a little tired of the instability that the main distributions are pushing out.

  10. zoltan Says:

    I’m using Fedora from Fc7 til now, and eagerly awaiting the 11th release. I know that each release has increasing number of features, but this is not bad – if more people helping to debug. Living on cutting edge also not simple – this is true, but you get always new features, what is not present anywhere. Also, don’t forget one more thing: Fedora is the testbed of RHEL…

    Want stability? Try Slackware.

  14. Anil Says:

    Whatever they might have .. ubuntu rocks !!.

  15. Mark Says:

    I still like the stability, look and feel of SUSE. I abandoned Red Hat a long time a go, seems so fractured


  16. I can’t wait to test the new release when it comes out. Hopefully they don’t forget about bug and security fixes, though. Hopefully there will be some useful features. Go Fedora!

    Nice article

  18. Catfish Says:

    Oh Joy. Become another alpha tester (the final release is beta) for Red Hat. My advice: If they have 60 new features in Fedora 11 — Run for the hills!!!! CentOS is looking better and better.

    I’ve been a fedora fan for many years. Fedora 10 was an awesome release in terms of support for hardware. I have it setup on 3 different machines and everything was up and running right out of the box with no driver issues or tweaks (wifi, sound, bluetooth, graphics etc)

    They’ve come a long way!
