With the release of Fedora 14, the blogosphere is abuzz with talk about its release, and after a quick trip to http://planet.fedoraproject.org/ you will discover dozens of posts covering the release.
Jim Whitehurst, President and CEO of Red Hat commended Fedora 14, it's amazing new features, and the new Fedora Project website design. "The release of Fedora 14 is more than just a collection of bits and bytes on a DVD – it shows that the “open source way” is alive and well. Fedora is a large and thriving community, and I’d like to take the opportunity to recognize the individuals that put time and effort into making Fedora what it is today. Fedora is not just programmers — Fedora literally has an army of developers, packagers, designers, marketers, ambassadors, translators, testers and writers from all walks of life that come together to build a new release approximately every six months."
The [Docs Project|Fedora Documentation Project] enumerated all of the different pieces of documentation that are available for Fedora 14 from the Amateur Radio Guide to the Musicians’ Guide and the Storage Administration Guide.
In "This Week in Anaconda" parts 2 and 3, Chris Lumens continued sharing some of the recent developments. One of the more notable changes is the dropping of support for multi-disc  install media sets. In Part 4, Chris explained how pieces of functionality that can be found in external libraries (such as libarchive's cpio support) are being used instead of duplicating that functionality within Anaconda.
Richard Hughes adapted PackageKit to Debian's debconf, potentially bringing PackageKit to a larger audience. The next change was an addition to PackageKit, allowing it to work with the preupgrade system for upgrading between major Fedora versions.
As you may have noticed, Fedora 14 wasn't the only head-covering Linux distribution with a recent release, Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 was also released, sporting libguestfs-1.2.7-1.24.el6, but RHEL 6.1 should have libguestfs 1.6.
Pavol Rusnak thinks that "pkg-config the best thing since sliced bread". "More and more projects are using pkg-config already, but there is still a very high number of projects that don’t. This post tries to describe why using pkg-config is a good idea."
Jesse Keating is stepping down from the role of lead release engineer for Fedora. "I will be taking the knowledge and lessons learned from our migration of CVS to git and applying it internally at Red Hat to migrate our internal package source control to git as well." Fear now however, Dennis Gilmore will be filling the role to lead the Fedora release engineering team.
