Fedora 18 Is Delayed Into 2013

There was another go/no-go meeting today for the Fedora 18 Beta and it was decided to delay the release for a seventh time. The Fedora 18 Beta was decided to be delayed by two weeks (compared to the normal one week delays) and the final F18 release will be set-back into 2013.

Fedora 18 has seen its share of delays and problems largely due to the reworked Anaconda installer that still isn't finished yet and has caused several of these F18 delays. It's now been delayed by months and the final Fedora 18 release slips from December to January with this latest delay.

At today's meeting it was decided to slip the F18 Beta by two weeks so that the installer team more time to finish up the new Anaconda plus extra time for the Red Hat developers to work out the new upgrade tool and also for the developers to finish up their Fedora 18 Secure Boot implementation.

Fedora 18 Beta is now hoped for release on the 27th of November while the revised Fedora 18 schedule puts the final release on 8 January 2013.

This latest delay was announced moments ago to the test-announce list. Fedora 18 at least has some really cool features for when it finally ships. The frequent delays though have led some developers to call for Fedora to become a rolling release distribution.
