What's new in Fedora 14 (The H)

The H takes Fedora 14 for a test drive and finds it a little thin on new features. There is, of course, the usual pile of "up-to-the-minute" versions of various packages. "Some Fedora users will also feel the benefits of an update, with Fedora 14 including newer versions of many applications. Version 14 includes hundreds of enhancements and bug fixes not explicitly mentioned above – the new features to be found in OpenOffice 3.3 are just one example of many. Objectively speaking, Laughlin contains significantly fewer enhancements than previous versions. The likely culprit is the end of the development phase of Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6, which has kept many of the Fedora developers employed by Red Hat busy over recent months."

RHEL 6? Not really. If you're missing features on the Fedora 14 desktop, that's because we were already working on GNOME 3 when the need for a GNOME 2.32 release came up.

Hundreds of enhancements and bug fixes and not many major new features? I hate to say it, but I like the sound of that.

Sometimes, not having any major new feature is a major new feature. Is that what you are trying to say?

Nicely put.

Of course Fedora looks boring compared to the grand posturing coming out of Shuttleworth on throwing away most of the community stack in Gnome Shell and X.org.

A PR win for Ubuntu despite it all being vapor so far?

You didn't see the comment by the Fedora graphics team that a Wayland backend is likely to be an (optional) part of F15?

Point is that THEIR announcement wasn't major news...
