    Fedora 9 ( Sulphur) has been released . Release notes can be found here. Some of the more interesting new features include a new package management system, which can be used as an alternative to pup and pirut, known as PackageKit. This release also includes GNOME 2.22 and/or KDE 4.0.3, and Firefox 3 beta 5. Overall, there are a lot of improvements worth looking at, and the Bittorrent seeds are already feeding the release fairly effectively.

    Fedora is the bleeding edge testbed for RHE/Centos :)

    I'm using it on my Dell Inspiron 9400 laptop. Everything worked out of the box, with no tweaks needed at all. Even the wireless works correctly! All the Fn-key shortcuts work properly, as well as the media controls on the front panel.

    I'm pretty happy. :)
