"Fedora 15 will be the first major Linux distribution to include GNOME
3, which was released two weeks ago. Fedora 15 will not include GNOME 2;
the KDE Plasma Desktop will be a member of the 4.6 series. The Fedora
Project has also undertaken a major behind the scenes change, so that
Fedora 15 will see a switch from Upstart to the sysvinit and Upstart
alternative systemd, which was first introduced just under a year ago.
The kernel in the beta is based on Linux version 2.6.38. LibreOffice
will fill the office suite shoes and the C and C++-Compiler will be the
GNU Compiler Collection (GCC) 4.6."
