> == Features ==
> This release of Fedora includes a variety of features both over and

> state of free software.  Here are just a few of the new features:
> On the desktop: GNOME 3.4 introduces many user experience improvements,
> including new search capabilities in the activities overview, improved
> themes, and enhancements to the Documents and Contacts applications.  A
> new application, GNOME-boxes, provides easy access to virtual
> machines. Additionally, GIMP 2.8, the newest version of the GNU Image
> Manipulation Program, brings new improvements such as single-window
> mode, layer groups, and on-canvas editing.
> For developers: You never sausage a great array of development tools!
> Fedora 17 includes a pre-release of Juno, the release of the Eclipse
> SDK expected in June 2012.  Java 7 (and OpenJDK 7) is the default Java
> runtime and Java build toolset, and GCC 4.7.x is now the primary
> compiler in Fedora.  Other language refreshes include shipping Ruby
> 1.9.3, the latest stable version of the Ruby language, PHP 5.4, the
> latest PHP stack, and Erlang has also been updated to the R15 release.
> Under the hood, and in the cloud: The Cluster stack in Fedora includes
> numerous and significant updates for both high availability and
> load-balancing applications.  Fedora 17 utilizes Linux kernel 3.3, with
> improved btrfs and ext4 filesystems, GMA (poulsbo) graphics and
> Broadcom wireless chipset support, and numerous other bug fixes and
> enhancements. Firewalld is now the default firewall solution in Fedora,
> providing dynamic firewall configuration capabilities.  Finally,
> OpenStack, a collection of services that can be used to set up and run
> cloud compute and storage infrastructure, has been updated to the
> latest release, 2012.1 (Essex).
> And that's only the beginning. A more complete list and details of all
> the new features in Fedora 17 is available here:
