Fedora 11 (Leonidas) Beta Now Available

Paul Lilly

Fedora fans looking to take a sneak peek at the open-source Linux distro's next release can now download the Fedora 11 (Leonidas) beta, which includes new security, desktop, and developer features. This may also serve as an indication of where Red Hat could take its enterprise Linux distribution, though not all features of Fedora end up in Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL).

According to the release notes , changes in Fedora 11 include a new volume control in GNOME with a simplified interface, guest user or kiosk mode now defaults in the Desktop Live CD, enhanced DNS security extensions, ext4 file system is now the default, support for the Btrfs file system, virtualization improvements, and a whole bunch more .

Fedora 11 is expected to be available in final form by the end of May.
