Red Hat-backed Fedora begins testing Core 5

Red Hat Inc's sponsored Fedora Linux community project has released the first test version of Fedora Core 5, giving Linux experts a first look at some of the technologies that will eventually find their way into Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.

By CBR Staff Writer

The next version of Raleigh, North Carolina-based Red Hat’s enterprise Linux distribution is not scheduled for release until the second half of 2006 but will include stateless Linux and Xen virtualization functionality and improved management capabilities.

Fedora Core 5 Release 1 includes updated support for XenSource Inc’s open source server virtualization software, as well as new versions of the Gnome and KDE user interfaces, and the final version of the OpenOffice.org application suite.

Like all the Fedora releases, Core 5 is not officially supported by Red Hat, and is designed for experts and enthusiasts and for evaluation purposes. The current Fedora Core schedule sees Test 2 released just before Christmas, followed by Test 3 in mid-January 2006, and the final release at the end of February.
