Following a period of Fedora contributors proposing codenames for the release of Red Hat's next community operating system, Fedora 14, voting commenced. Fortunately, the name that's been decided upon is not Fytnargin.

The decided upon codename is Laughlin. With a vote count of 610, the next release of Fedora is being called Laughlin. The other codenames that were proposed included Laramie (594), Ventnor (507), Mitikas (482), Hoppin (459), and Fytnargin (403).

Fedora 14 "Laughlin" is scheduled to be released in late October or early-to-mid November. The first alpha release of Red Hat's Fedora 14 is expected in mid-August. Fedora 14 is expected to ship with X.Org Server 1.9, GCC 4.5, and offer many other package updates and new features. Meanwhile, Fedora 13 is coming next week.
