Fedora 11 - aka "Leonidas" - is here
It's a wee bit later than originally planned, but finally we have a shiny new version of Fedora to play with. Codenamed Leonidas, Fedora 11 brings together a bunch of tweaks and enhancements, described in boring business-like language in the official announcement and with a fantastic, surreal slant in the Fedora mailing list post. Grab a full-on DVD installer ISO or a smaller CD Live version from this page, and see after the break for a summary of the changes.
