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.

The release announcement sheds additional light onto Fedora 15 Beta along with download links for the various flavors.

For those still in the Mandrake/Mandriva camp, Mandriva 2011 Beta 2 has been released as well. Mandriva 2011 Beta 2 packs Libreoffice 3.3, the Linux 2.6.38 kernel, GCC 4.6.0, systemd 24, etc. It also features some KMS changes we'll investigate and possibly report on separately in the near future.

The Mandriva 2011 Beta 2 release announcement can be found on the Mandriva Blog.
