Fedora Project, the Red Hat-sponsored open source program, on Tuesday unleashed its latest version of Linux-based operating systems, Fedora 10, which is touted to provide enhanced experience in several fields, including networking, virtualization management, security, and booting rates and capability.
The launch of Fedora 10, tagged as “Cambridge”, has been delayed due to a security breach in Red Hat Fedora infrastructure
The updated version of the Fedora operating system would allow remote management of virtual hosts and storage, which would surely be beneficial for the network administrators with fragmented teams.
In addition, it would enable its users to share their web connection with other users, and it start up faster than its previous versions.
The launch has been delayed by about four weeks, owing to the security breach, which led to the outage of the infrastructure for almost three weeks, Paul Frields, Fedora’s project head mentioned.
Frields somehow justified the outage time by saying, “during that time, our infrastructure team nuked our infrastructure and rebuilt the entire thing”.
He further stated that the outage time helped Fedora developers in making some key improvements in its infrastructure, which otherwise would not have been possible.
Meanwhile, Frields also claimed that Fedora has the largest Linux distribution with over 9.5 million users, surpassing Ubuntu that claimed around 8 million users.
