What is new in Fedora 13 ?


Automatic Print Driver Installation : gutenprint-packages such as cups, hpijs and pbm2l2030 must be installed on demand when the hardware that require drivers are detected.

Color Management : Color Manager GNOME session is a framework that makes it easy to handle, install and create color profiles in the GNOME desktop

Easier Debugging Python : The gdb debugger has been extended so that it can communicate detailed information about the inner workings of Python 2 and Python 3 runtimes 

3D Support: In Fedora 12 experimental support for 3D through-mesa-dri package-experimental drivers for ATI cards became available and has been expanded in Fedora 13 to support the systems through Nouveau Nvidia Driver.

PulseAudio Integration KDE  : Fedora 13 offers a better integration of PulseAudio in Phonon KDE and KMix

Bluetooth DUN NetworkManager: NetworkManager now supports easy-to-use Bluetooth Dial-Up Networking (DUN) support.

Include include Gnome 2.30.

Mobile NetworkManager Status : The NetworkManager applet shows the current signal strength, technology (GPRS / EDGE / UMTS / HSPA or 1x/EVDO etc), and roaming status while connected to the cards which support this functionality.

Fedora 13 SC have KDE 4.4, GNOME 2.30, support NFSv4, RPM 4.8, support both Python 3 and Python 2.x, OpenOffice.org 3.2.0, the Sugar desktop 0.88 (famous for its integration into the XO laptop One Laptop Per Child project), Firefox 3.6.2, and Upstart 0.6.0.

( Sorry for my low skill of english - not my natural language (fr) and I speak C++ even better !)

Right now I am running Kubuntu 10.04 LTS.

I am very impatient to jump (back) to Fedora 13. There are several aspects of (K)Ubuntu that are very annoying to me.

What I read about F13 (from several sources) features have made me decided to return and leave Ubuntu for good.

Thank you for this, and to let me express me-self ;-)

It'd be very nice if ATi managed to drive its own cards under Fedora with good stable drivers .__.
