Fedora 21 Beta & Final Release Slip Further

At the beginning of today I wrote how the Fedora 21 Beta was pushed back but just by one day. Now after another Go/No-Go meeting today, Fedora 21 beta and all subsequent deadlines have been pushed back by one week.

Fedora 21 Beta was supposed to ship next week but due to blocker bugs pertaining to the Anaconda installer and other key areas, it's been slipped by one week. Fedora 21 Beta is now expected to debut on 4 November, one week later than anticipated. Fedora 21 final is also now expected to ship 9 December, rather than 2 December, which was already delayed more than one month when Fedora developers struggled to get out the Fedora 21 Alpha release.

The revised Fedora 21 schedule can be found via the Fedora Wiki. At least the delays are coming in the name of quality and Fedora 21 is shaping up to be their best release ever and is even tempting me to switch back to Fedora from Ubuntu for the past several years since the Fedora Core days.
