Well, Fedora 14 Will Not Ship On Time

Besides features like SystemD replacing SysVInit and a much faster JPEG compression/decompression library, one of the other proposals for Fedora 14 was to actually ship it on time. Red Hat's Fedora project has had a poor track record lately of shipping their alpha, beta, and final releases on time and none of the past five releases at least have actually made it out on their due date. John Poelstra, the Fedora Program Manager, sought to change this with Fedora 14, but the entire release schedule has already slipped.

Jared Smith, the new Fedora Project Leader, announced last night that the decision was made by the Fedora engineering, development, and QA teams that a delay was in order for this release that is codenamed Laughlin. This decision was made as the Fedora 14 Alpha release was not ready and they felt an extra week was needed to get this first test release in order. With the alpha release slipping, the entire release schedule has been pushed back by one week time.

Rather than Fedora 14 "Laughlin" officially being released on the 26th of October, it's now planned for release on the 2nd of November, barring anymore delays. The revised Fedora 14 schedule can be found on the Fedora Project Wiki. The announcement by Jared last night was made on the fedora-announce list.
