Fedora Core 6 Test Drive

NEW HATS

Article from Issue 75/2007

See what’s new in Fedora Core 6 – the latest release of the Red Hat-based Fedora project.

The latest release of Red Hat’s Fedora Core community distribution appeared at the end of October. Fedora Core 6 provides optical improvements, and some interesting developments inside, like optimization of dynamic libraries and enhanced integration of the Xen virtualization solution. You don’t need to finish installation to find some of Fedora’s new features: the Anaconda installer, which has been around since the early days of Red Hat, has a few changes. Anaconda started using the Yum API in Fedora Core 5, but now users can integrate third-party repositories at the install stage. This feature is useful for professional administrators, as it lets you integrate customized repositories. End users will be interested in other features of the new Fedora, such as support for Intel Macs.
