Fedora 13 is in a beta stage at the moment, but the developers have already announced the release dates and the codename for the next version of the Fedora operating system. The codename for Fedora 14 is "Laughlin" and it will be released sometime in October-November 2010. Other possible codenames were: Laramie, Ventnor, Mitikas, Hoppin and Fytnargin. "Thank you to the community for helping us select the name of the follow-up to Fedora 13, 'Goddard.' The Fedora 14 release name is: Laughlin" - the Fedora developers said.
Make sure you visit our website starting with August 17th, when the first alpha will be available for testing, as we will do a full coverage of the Fedora 14 development process. Without any further introduction, let's have a look at the release schedule:
August 17th, 2010 - Alpha release;
September 21th, 2010 - Beta release;
October 14th, 2010 - Release Candidate;
October 26th, 2010 - Fedora 14 final release.
This is the official release schedule, but everyone knows that it might change in time, and the final version could be delayed a few weeks. Fedora 14 will include bleeding-edge packages, such as the unreleased Linux kernel 2.6.34, X.Org Server 1.9, GNOME 3.0, GCC 4.5, and many more! In the meantime, don't forget to visit us in two weeks, when the final release of Fedora 13 (Goddard) will be available for download!
The Fedora Project is a Red-Hat-sponsored and community-supported open-source project. It is also a proving ground for new technology that may eventually make its way into Red Hat products and it is not a supported product of Red Hat. The goal of The Fedora Project is to work with the Linux community in order to build a complete, general-purpose operating system exclusively from free software.
