"Automatic driver installations, better mobile broadband and the end of PowerPC support can be expected from Fedora 13.

"Fedora Linux, the community release of Red Hat, is putting the final touches to its latest release, Fedora 13. Codenamed "Goddard", Fedora 13 has a number of features that will please end users as well as systems administrators. Fedora 13 also ends the relationship with PowerPC processors and now backs the KVM virtualisation system.

"For desktop users there are a number of key additions in Fedora 13. Chief among these are the automatic print driver installations.

Fedora 13 will now automatically offer to install appropriate drivers when a new printer is plugged in."
