F13 one page release notes/it
Fedora è un sistema operativo, basato su Linux, che consente al tuo PC, portatile o server di funzionare con il più recente software free e open source, mettendoti a diposizione centinaia di applicazioni sviluppate dalla community. Il sistema operativo Fedora, utile ed accessibile, è realizzato grazie al contributo di tante persone del globo che cooperano insieme: il Fedora Project.
Fedora è free (non ha bisogno di licenza) per l'uso: si può modificare, copiare e distribuire liberamente; e contiene tutto il software necessario per lavorare, giocare, comunicare ed altro ancora. Per conoscere le attività svolte dal Fedora Project, puoi dare un'occhiata alla Panoramica.
Quali sono le novità in Fedora 13?
Fedora 13 (Goddard) si è arricchito per rendere Linux ancora migliore, per tutte le tipologie di utenti. Ecco alcune novità che troverai in Fedoa 13.
Per gli Utenti Desktop
|Have you ever tried to use a new printer and been frustrated by error messages and having to hunt for the correct driver to install? With the new easy printing feature in Fedora 13, plug your printer in and Fedora automatically finds and installs the correct driver. This feature allows you to print in many different locations and churn out copies within minutes. It's one of several innovations in Fedora 13 that let you take better advantage of your system's hardware.|
Gestione Colore helps artists, photographers, and designers to display and print their work more accurately by using 100% free software. Accurate color outputs for displays, printers, and scanners help you to ensure that the photo you scanned looks exactly the same on screen. And after you touch it up or enhance it, the colors you've chosen are true to how it will print. Color management provides true color workflow for illustrators, designers, photographers, publishers, and creators of all skill levels.
| Vuoi il 3D? We've got it, in completely free, accelerated video drivers for ATI, Intel, and now NVidia too. Out of the box you can run a variety of 3D accelerated games, enable cool desktop effects, and even try out the next-generation GNOME Shell on Intel and ATI cards. To set up the new bling for NVidia, just install the mesa-dri-drivers-experimental package using Fedora's handy PackageKit tool.
And since these drivers are completely free (as in cost and freedom), we can continue improving them like any other free and open source software so your enjoyment grows over time.
Per gli Amministratori
If you spend your day managing how other people around you use Linux, Fedora 13 is loaded with features that will make your life even easier. Whether you want to migrate new users to a Linux environment or experiment with the newest in open-source technologies to give yourself an edge, Fedora has all the tools you need.
| For instance, you can download a single, tiny image file from BFO (boot.fedoraproject.org), based on the work of boot.kernel.org, and from it run and install current and future versions of Fedora without having to download additional images.
Do you need to log in to your office's domain even though you're on the go with a laptop? Then you'll love the brand-new SSSD (System Security Services Daemon). This new software provides expanded features for logging into managed domains, including caching for offline authentication. So even if you're sitting in a coffeeshop in San Diego, you can still access your office back in New York using Fedora.
The things you know and love are still here - but better than ever. NFSv4 -- the latest version of NFS -- is now available by default in Fedora 13, bringing you better performance and IPv6 support. Support for flexible, expandable logical volumes (LVM) has been added to Fedora's disk utilities, making the measurement of disk performance a snap.
The best part? They're all free and open source software -- just one more thing you can impress the boss with.
Per gli Sviluppatori
Sei un hackerCite error: Invalid
name cannot be a simple integer. Use a descriptive title, a cui interessa sapere come è realizzato il software open source? O, stai per per realizzare una grande applicazione web che stupirà il mondo? Bè, allora apprezzerai le novità per gli sviluppatori, presenti in Fedora 13.
| SystemTap ti offre già diverse modalità per monitorare il kernel, come sapere se stia leggendo dalla rete o scrivendo su disco. Ma con i nuovi static probe in Fedora 13, SystemTap può scovare al di là del kernel, permettendo di vedere cosa succede all'interno delle applicazioni e nel runtime di linuguaggi come Java, Python e TCL.
E come non ricordare gli avanzamenti in Python! Se sei un amante di Python come noi, noterai la capacità di Fedora 13 di generare backtrace per linguaggi misti. Il debug di codice misto, Python e C/C++ si, è notevolmente semplificato in Fedora 13, grazie allo sforzo compiuto in Fedora dai suoi progettisti. Inoltre Fedora 13 si fa pionere di uno stack Phyton 3, installabile in parallelo per consentire di realizzare e testare codice in entrambi gli ambienti, Python 2.6 e Python 3.
E se ti interessa Java, allora troverai la version 6.8 della NetBeans IDE, la prima ad offrire completo supporto all'intera Java EE 6 spec. Si è anche migliorato il supporto per JSF 2.0/Facelets, Java Persistence 2.0, ed EJB 3.1.
E naturalmente la collezione di pacchetti di Fedora, è ricca di centinaia di altri strumenti per molti linguaggi e stili di sviluppo. Del resto sono gli stessi strumenti che usiamo anche noi per questi nostri sviluppi.
Spins are more specialized versions of Fedora that allow you to run programs that suit your interests. For example:
| Got a netbook?
Try the Moblin™ spin, a version of Fedora featuring the Moblin Core architecture. Everything from application choice to screen resolution has been designed to support multiple platforms and usage models -- ranging from Netbooks and NetTops to Mobile Internet Devices and embedded devices.
| Know a curious kid?
Try the Sugar on a Stick spin! This spin features the award-winning Sugar Learning Platform originally developed for the One Laptop Per Child project and used every school day by one million children in more than forty countries. Students can take their stick (an ordinary USB thumbdrive) to any machine running any operating system -- at school, at home, at a local library or community center -- and boot their custom Sugar environment without touching any files on the host machine, bringing personalized computing within the reach of any child.
| Feeling artistic?
The Fedora Design Suite was constructed for designers, by designers. It features the tools the Fedora Design Team uses on a daily basis to create the wallpapers, icons, and interfaces that you see in Fedora. This spin includes everything from document layouts, to vector and bitmap graphics, to 3D modeling. If you can dream it, you can create it with this powerful assortment of free and open source artistic tools.
| Learning about computer security?
The Fedora Security Lab is an environment designed by and for computer security professors and professionals. With applications for everything from security auditing and forensics, to penetration testing and intrusion detection, it's an ideal tool for the classroom, or for the system administrator who needs to diagnose and rescue broken computers.

How to get started
Intrigued? Want to give Fedora 13 a try?
You can visit http://fedoraproject.org/get-fedora to download a LiveCD, regardless of what operating system you're running. This will give you a working version of Fedora, complete with common applications, all running off your CD drive - your hard drive won't be touched at all. And when you're ready, installation is just a click away.
Want an even more enjoyable way to use Fedora, risk-free? Try the Live USB option. You can use the same download to create a bootable USB stick so you can take Fedora with you anywhere you go. It works great with netbooks without CD drives, too. Check out the instruction page here:
And if you're running Fedora 12, upgrading is easy. Refer to our handy documentation for help.
