This is a DRAFT for feedback. Do not rely on any information here.

Beta is not released yet.

Quick notes:

  • Hybrid ISO - earlier revision in Alpha release notes history. Confirm that it works well before adding it here
  • Moblin - Explain in detail with potentially a screencast
  • GNOME Shell - Ogg Screencast possibly with voice over
  • Yum Presto - In GNOME and KDE groups. Deltarpms are being generated in Rawhide again.
  • Abrt - whats the status?
  • Anaconda MDRaid - Explain in detail
  • Lower Process Capabilities
  • Contact KDE SIG and gather important changes. Phonon has changed to gstreamer backend in Alpha release and was not mentioned. So call it out in the Beta release.

Additional sources:

  • Look at F11 Preview release notes and use it as a template
  • Read rawhide reports in between alpha and beta release for new packages as well as import changes worth noting here
  • Quickly skimp through all threads in fedora-devel and fedora-test list for note worthy changes
  • Read Planet Fedora and reference developer blogs when important changes are mentioned
  • Consult with QA team and make sure note worth issues are mentioned. If anything needs explicit testing, highlight it

Unsure status:

Dennis Gilmore mentioned that one of the secondary architectures might have a beta release. Followup on that

Last step:

Once you have a good draft, send it over to the fedora-devel and fedora-test list for feedback. Do it once before a week and once again two days before beta release.
