Fedora 7 Is Officially Released!

Fedora

As in the pre-announcement as well as official announcement, Fedora 7 has been officially released today, at 10.06PM (UTC +8). Although I’m not a Fedora fan and don’t intend to use it in my daily life, I’ve been following Fedora (previously known as Fedora Core) developement due to its close relationship with Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL).

Notable new features in Fedora 7:

  • includes the 2.6.21 based kernel which integrates Kernel-based Virtual Machine (KVM)
  • includes several different spins; GNOME and KDE desktop environment based bootable Live images, a regular image for desktops, workstations and server users and A set of DVD images that includes all software available in the Fedora repository.
  • features GNOME 2.18 and KDE 3.5.6
  • includes a refreshing new “Flying High” theme
  • Firefox 2 includes a host of new features including an inline speller checker, built-in phishing protection, and the ability to resume browsing sessions.
  • new comprehensive graphical administration tool for SELinux, system-config-selinux
  • The SELinux troubleshooting tool ‘setroubleshoot’ is enabled by default
  • features integration of a new FireWire stack
  • includes improved power management through implementation of dynamic ticks in the kernel.
  • integrates the experimental nouveau driver within Xorg and the kernel
  • the performance of yum, Pirut, and Pup has been significantly improved
  • first release to include support for Sony Playstation 3
  • all hard disk partitions follow a /dev/sd* naming convention due to a new libata driver interface in the kernel
  • mac80211 (formerly called Devicescape) wireless stack has been integrated with the kernel
  • Smolt is integrated with firstboot in the installer.
  • The Fedora Directory Server base is now part of the Fedora software repository.
  • Python 2.5 is included in this release, and all of the Python software available in the repository uses it.

You can get other interesting stuff such as screenshots and videos at Fedora 7 Tour page. Documentations are available from Fedora Documentation Project while ISO’s are available from the Fedora Public Mirrors and Fedora Tracker.
