Fedora 15 is set to be released at the end of May, and with a month having passed since Fedora 15 Alpha, it's now time for Fedora 15 Beta. Dennis Gilmore has announced the release of Fedora 15 Beta. "I beta one American dollar that you will love this release!"
Fedora 15 Beta features the GNOME 3.0 desktop complete with its Shell and Mutter in supported configurations, LibreOffice, a new dynamic firewall, GCC 4.6 integration, and various other improvements.
