    Default Fedora 8 (2007-10-24 Rawhide)

    Phoronix: Fedora 8 (2007-10-24 Rawhide)

    The release of Fedora 8 (codenamed Werewolf) is due out for release in less than two weeks and comes with a host of new features. Fedora 8 will offer a Codec Buddy for installing audio/video codecs, an open-source Java stack now based upon IcedTea, improved laptop support, the Pulse Audio sound server, remove virtualization support, and much more. As a sneak peak at the final release of Fedora 8, taken from the Fedora 2007-10-24 Rawhide spin we have screenshots of the improvements to the Fedora Firstboot, the Fedora 8 GNOME desktop, and also the KDE version of Fedora 8. Enjoy!

    Default is it a typo?

    "...remove virtualization support..." ?

    is this true? Did you mean 'improved virtualisation'?

    Oops, bad typo. It was intended to be "remote virtualization support". It's now corrected, thanks.

    I already tried the 2007-10-19 Rawhide and yes, Fedora 8 is definitly going to rock once more. Debian > Fedora > Ubuntu.

    On my book Fedora > Debian for one simple little tiny detail: multilib support. Last time I checked even Etch still relies on 'jails' (chroots)... Multilib is one thing Fedora has gotten right, right from the start.
