Spicy Fedora 14 Adds New Linux Flavor
Polishing the Plumbing
By Sean Michael Kerner

The Red Hat sponsored Fedora Linux community distribution is out this 
week with the first beta of the Fedora 14 release. The new distribution 
updates key applications and introduces new security and virtualization 
capabilities as well as support for the latest open source programming 

"A lot of the features in Fedora 14 are more under-the-covers type 
plumbing that needed to be done," Jared Smith, Fedora Project Leader, 
told /InternetNews.com/. "There are not a lot of new desktop-centric 
features in this release."

One new feature that desktop users may benefit from is the SPICE 
virtualization support included in Fedora 14. SPICE, the Simple Protocol 
for Independent Computing Environment, is technology that Red Hat gained 
as part of its acquisition of Qumranet 
in 2008.
