"The Red Hat-sponsored Fedora Project today officially released
the Fedora 13 Linux distribution, codenamed "Goddard," with

"The new Fedora 13 release comes six months after Fedora 12's
debut and continues to enhance the Linux operating system
experience for its users. Fedora 13 includes improved
virtualization, along with other developer, desktop and server
""We have a number of features designed to make Fedora a more
pleasant release for everyone that uses it, not just the super
hackers among us, but also the people that are just discovering
open source for the first time, and everyone in between," Fedora
Project Leader Paul Frields told InternetNews.com.
"In particular, Frields cited hardware enablements as a
"consistent theme" in the Fedora 13 release. Chief among those
include improved free video, printer, scanner and camera drivers
and management features. Frields also noted that the new color
management feature in Fedora 13 provides a true-color workflow for
scanning, printing and display."
