This blog is a friendly introduction to the exciting world of Fedora’s permanent development branch called Rawhide and the Fedora branch for the upcoming release of Fedora. Fedora is a well known innovator and a giant contributor among Linux distributions and in the FOSS world and the development branches are a great place to track the bleeding edge of the latest development as they happen. There are dozens and dozens of updates being pushed every day and you can follow them on mails sent to the devel and test lists called Rawhide report but I will highlight the notable changes. This should be fun and interesting.
My next blog post would cover the newly approved features of Fedora 14 in detail. Along the lines, we will also take a look at how the whole process works and what is involved in getting a feature into the official feature list. Let’s get the ball rolling soon.
