Fedora 17 Beta
Karin Bakis posted a batch of stories covering the Fedora 17 beta release:
"The Fedora Project has announced the release of the first and only beta version of Fedora 17, the final version of which is due for publication on 22 May. The beta implements all major changes in full, including the 'UsrMove' modification to filesystem structure, which will result in all applications and libraries being stored in subdirectories of /usr/."

"While Fedora 17 is certainly beefy, what's been delivered with this first and only beta is not particularly miraculous.
"Among the more noticeable changes is GNOME 3.4, the latest version of the GNOME 3 desktop. While the Fedora DVD still ships with a variety of desktops, the live CD defaults to GNOME and for some time now Fedora has served as a showcase for the development of GNOME 3."

The value of Fedora to ordinary users is that it doesn't stand still, and each new release brings new possibilities."
