"The Red Hat sponsored Fedora Linux community distribution is
out this week with the first beta of the Fedora 14 release. The new
distribution updates key applications and introduces new security
and virtualization capabilities as well as support for the latest
open source programming languages.
""A lot of the features in Fedora 14 are more under-the-covers
type plumbing that needed to be done," Jared Smith, Fedora Project
Leader, told InternetNews.com. "There are not a lot of new
desktop-centric features in this release."
"One new feature that desktop users may benefit from is the
SPICE virtualization support included in Fedora 14. SPICE, the
Simple Protocol for Independent Computing Environment, is
technology that Red Hat gained as part of its acquisition of
Qumranet in 2008."
