In following with this thread and others, I have to disagree with the above statement.
Why? I see that in upstream the version of ImageMagick is :
while in Fedora rawhide the version is :
[olivares at localhost ~]$ uname -r
[olivares at localhost ~]$ rpm -qa ImageMagick*
texlive is still at 2007:
[olivares at localhost ~]$ rpm -qa texlive*
while the latest version is 2008. This is not very much true for all packages in Fedora, but though most of the time, Fedora does try to be as close to the releases, but these are exceptions not the rule :)
xine-lib was recently updated, in a day or two problably not more, we will see updates here on rawhide, on fedora 10 and fedora 9 for it:
This is a very strong point for Fedora.
WRT to the CTRL + ALT + BACKSPACE to kill X/restart the X server, I hope that they bring it back at least for many users. We will appreciate that Fedora developers care to put it back.
