The Fedora Project held a Thanksgiving Day Go/No-Go meeting for the long-delayed Fedora 18 Beta. The developers decided that the beta is finally in a condition where it's ready to ship.

The Fedora 18 Beta will be released next Tuesday, 27 November. Originally this release was supposed to happen on 2 October until it encountered a total of six delays. The delays mostly come down to technical problems and the new Anaconda installer having taken way too long to get into shape. Some Fedora developers were calling for getting rid of Fedora 18 altogether due to these major set-backs while others saw this as an opportunity to push Fedora as a rolling-release distribution.

Due to all of the delays, the final release of Fedora 18 will not come until 2013. At least though there are a number of cool features for when Fedora 18 finally ships...
