Planet Fedora

In this section, we cover the highlights of Planet Fedora[1] - an aggregation of blogs from Fedora contributors worldwide.

Contributing Writer: Adam Batkin

General

Martin Sourada took a look[1] at font antialiasing and what makes fonts look ugly. In a further post, Martin answered[2] the more general question "Why is my design blurry?"

In the continuing journey of libguestfs Richard W.M. Jones added[3],[4],[5] support for working with the Windows registry form a Linux guest. Apparently you can also[6] mount guest filesystems on the host filesystem using FUSE (the example provided even mounts a Windows guest's NTFS filesystem to a Linux host).

Tim Lauridsen demonstrated[7] a new feature of yum in Fedora 12: history, "that makes it possible to see what happened in part of a transaction and redo/undo past transactions."

Paul W. Frields outlined[8] some of the new features to be found in the Fedora 12 beta. and encouraged[9] anyone who finds an issue to report it! Don't assume that someone else will have already filed a bug.

Paul also reprinted[10] a posting from the Fedora Advisory Board mailing list about the mission of Fedora, its goals and target audience.

Peter Hutterer explained[11] what goes in to the X Windowing system release (now that X11R7.5 has been released).

Máirín Duffy displayed[12] the new default wallpaper slated for Fedora 12. Shiny!

Richard Hughes built[13] a tool (still in its early stages) to deal with ICC Color management under GNOME.

Alex Hudson investigated[14] some ugly corporate lobbying against free software.
