Fedora, a free Linux based Operating System used by thousands of web hosting companies worldwide said that it works to make the new Fedora Core 6 more friendly and easier to use.
Fedora Project has already announced the second release of the Fedora Core 6 development cycle, available for the i386, x86_64, and ppc/ppc64 architectures, including Intel based Macintosh computers.
The developers warn that the test releases are recommended only for Linux experts/enthusiasts or for the technology evaluation, as many parts are likely to be broken and the rate of change is rapid. The schedule of the test release of the Core 6 is available at http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Core/Schedule
Test 3 of the OS is scheduled for release September 11. Since then the development team will work to fix only critical bugs. Fedora Projects asks more Linux developers with advanced knowledge to participate in testing, reporting for bugs.
“Please direct bugs to http://bugzilla.redhat.com, product Fedora Core, Version fc6test2. As always, be sure that your bug is not already fixed by updates and search for existing bugs before filing” says the project’s appeal.
Fedora 6 is aimed to serve as the basis for the Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 (RHEL) by the end of 2006. The project’s founder Damien Durand and the development team said that they aim to make the free Linux distribution more consistent and to set standards for documentation and web site design for Fedora.
