Try Hands At Fedora 10 Alpha

Friday, August 8, 2008

Fedora 10 Alpha has been released by Red hat . The next version of the community-supported, free and open source Linux distribution features enhancements to the audio, security and wireless-connection features of the operating system. Fedora 10 (Cambridge) is due out in November 2008, and the Alpha release provides a chance for the whole community to weigh in.
Red Hat engineers working in Fedora and upstream communities have been developing several new features slated for Fedora 10. Here are just a few of the features: glitch free audio -- the PulseAudio stack has been enhanced to use timer-based scheduling. This means that it uses less power, is more hardware independent and adjusts dynamically to keep audio data flowing without interruption — minimising drop outs.

Fedora 10 will feature a brand new security auditing and intrusion detection system -- Sectool. It has both text and graphical front ends, features highly configurable groups for adjusting test runs, and is completely modular and extensible. Administrators and the community at large can write their own tests to extend its functionality even further.

Fedora 10 delivers on the promise of NetworkManager’s 'create new wireless network' tool, with easy setup of an ad-hoc Wi-Fi network on any machine with a network connection and a spare wireless card. If the machine has primary network connection (wired, 3G, second wireless card), routing is set up so that devices connected to the ad-hoc wifi network can share the connection to the outside network.

There are more great features on the way. As always, everything that goes into and comes out of the Fedora Project is completely open and free for anyone to use, modify and redistribute.

Get involved in testing the new features – check out the Fedora 10 Alpha release notes and then download the Alpha.
