Fedora 10 alpha code is go

Calling all testers

The essential guide to IT transformation

The Red Hat-sponsored open source team behind Fedora has released an alpha version of Fedora 10 (Cambridge) with better security features and audio support.

The operating system is suitable for testing but not for running on any critical systems.

Along with bug fixes Fedora promises better audio support, a graphical security system called Sectool and an easier way to set up wireless networks. Fedora 10 also includes OpenChange - which should improve interaction with Microsoft Exchange boxes.

Testers are asked to download the OS and report problems to the Fedora team. Development will continue, hopefully solving any problems reported, until the beta release and final release candidate.

There is more information on the software and a link to the download site here. ®
