Fedora 10 Takes Shape

Filed under
Linux

What does the future hold for Linux development at Red Hat? A look at some of the new features coming in the Fedora 10 Linux distribution release might yield some clues.

Currently in early development with a feature freeze scheduled for the end of August, Fedora 10 includes a host of improvements that aim to improve audio, packaging, networking and security features.

The development of Fedora 10 comes as Red Hat continues to try and push the envelope for Linux with new and emerging technology targets. Fedora plays an important role for Red Hat since the OS serves as an incubator for technologies that often end up in the company's flagship, Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL).

It's all part of Red Hat's path toward becoming the first Linux vendor to make $1 billion -- a process that ensures new features are added, tested and improved.
