Fedora 15 Ahead

As the release cycle for Fedora 14 ended, is time to start the cycle for the next one, and Martin Sourada updated[1] the development page for Fedora 15[2] taking in the consideration the general release schedule[3] and the experiences learned from past releases "I've put together initial key milestones for schedule for f15 artwork, based on the previous schedule and proposed main f15 release schedule dates. Based on experience I've changed some details compared to last time."

One Page Release Notes

Fedora 14 is released but the One Page Release Notes[1] is still work-in-progress and Paul Frields asked[2] for an updated graphic banner "I bet that, if someone combined that template with the photo found on slide 4 of the top banner on http://fedoraproject.org/ and updated the release number to 14, you'd have a stupendous banner for our one page release notes page", task which was quickly accomplished[3] by Jef van Schendel.
