Written by Michael Larabel in Fedora on 28 July 2008 at 09:43 PM EDT. Add A Comment
Cambridge was the Red Hat project that went on to form Fedora Core and it was the release name for Fedora Core 1. Now with Fedora 10, Red Hat has gone full-circle and its codename is Cambridge. This codename was voted on by Fedora contributors and among the other contenders were Farnsworth, Nitrate, Saltpetre, Terror, and Whiskey Run.

The first alpha release of Fedora 10 "Cambridge" is planned for next Tuesday (August 5) while the final release is planned for October 28. Some of the planned features for Fedora 10 can be found on the Fedora Wiki. The Fedora 10 codename was announced tonight on the fedora-announce mailing list. For reference, below are all of the Fedora code-names to this point. You may also be interested in our Visual History of Fedora.
