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

Jack Aboutboul linked to the Fedora 11 Podcast interview with Jonathan Dieter about
Presto, which allows users to update their RPM-based system without having to download entire RPM files (only their deltas are downloaded).
Peter Hutterer explained how X handles mouse button mappings (it's not as easy as you think!) and continued with "XI2 Recipes, Part 1" and example programs that can support multiple mouse cursors and keyboard foci.
Dave Malcolm released a new version (0.4) of
squeal, the command line text query tool, with a number of new features include the ability to handle arbitrary text files (split on whitespace like awk, or use regular expressions) and support for pcap (tcpdump/wireshark) dump files.
Paul W. Frields published a "Fedora teams’ call to action" which might be described as a number of important points to make Fedora teams more "sustainable" (how would a team cope if a contributor was eaten by a dinosaur?)
