Red Hat's Fedora 14 Boasts Updated Development Tools, New Virtualization
By Jason Brooks
Fedora 14, the latest release of Red Hat's fast-moving,
community-supported Linux distribution, hit the Internet earlier this
month bearing its typical crop of updated open-source software
applications, with a particular focus on updated developer tools, such
as the latest versions of the Eclipse and Netbeans Integrated
Development Environments. As far as new features are concerned, Fedora
14 is a fairly modest release, particularly when compared to the latest
from Fedora's chief Linux rival, Ubuntu.
The Fedora feature that most caught my eye was the addition of software
packages to enable Spice, the remote desktop protocol that Red Hat
picked up in its 2008 acquisition of Qumranet, the creator of Red Hat's
KVM open-source hypervisor. While KVM was fairly quickly digested into
the distributions of Red Hat and other Linux vendors, Spice has proven
more of a challenge, due in large part to the fact that it started out
as a proprietary technology <http://www.eweek.com/#>.
