Fedora 14 beta is released, this is the last development build before the final release scheduled for early November

“The Beta release of Fedora 14 “Laughlin” similarly provides a preview of some of the best free and open source technology currently under development, integrated into an ordered distribution that anyone can freely download, use, modify, and redistribute.”

 

“The beta release is the last important milestone of Fedora 14; only critical bug fixes will be pushed as updates leading up to the general release in early November. Features: the Spice framework for providing a virtual desktop infrastructure; extended utilities for remote or powered-off management of servers; updates in a wide variety of programming languages, including D programming language support and Rakudo Star, an early implementation of the Perl 6 specification; alternative environments like Sugar and software from the MeeGo project; the next-generation systemd management for faster start-up..”  Read the full announcement.

 

Here are some notable features you can test out in the Fedora 14 Beta:

  • The Spice (Simple Protocol for Independent Computing Environments) framework for providing a virtual desktop infrastructure, which is expected to be extended and integrated in future releases
  • Extended utilities for remote or powered-off management of servers with IPMI (Intelligent Platform Management Interface) capabilities
  • Updates in a wide variety of programming languages, including D programming language support and Rakudo Star, an early implementation of the Perl 6 specification based on the Parrot virtual machine
  • Improved debugging and integration with existing tools to enhance Fedora as a RAD platform
  • Alternative environments like Sugar, and software from the MeeGo™ project
  • The next-generation systemd management for faster startup and on-demand loading and unloading of services is expected to be offered as a technology preview in Fedora 14, and is likely to become the default initialization system in Fedora 15
