Fedora 19 will catch up GNOME 3.8 with a 4 months release cycle

Filed under
Linux

After the 2 months delay and the 8 months release cycle of Spherical Cow, Fedora now will try to make a “Speedy Gonzales” release inside in just 4 months. This is the shortest release cycle that Fedora ever had from its day one – Nov 2003, Yarrow / GNOME 2.4 / Linux 2.4.19.

Fedora 19 is scheduled [*Draft*] for May 21, when GNOME 3.8 is coming out in Mar 27.

A 4 months Release Schedule

It was a question since the huge delay in Fedora 18, when Fedora 19 would be available. Well, Fedora is coming back to its normal 2 releases a year schedule May/November. To succeed this, Fedora 19 should come out just 4 months after 18.
