Fedora 19 Despite having a code name that evokes quantum uncertainty, Fedora 19 "Schrödinger's Cat", has arrived on time. The new release of Fedora arrives with the features as previewed in May's beta. For developers, the OpenShift Origin platform-as-a-service, the Node.js asynchronous JavaScript platform and Ruby 2.0 as standard are highlights of the release. Database users will find Fedora 19 has switched to MariaDB as its new standard database, while makers will find a range of 3D design and print tools are now available. There's also a switch to GCC 4.8 for building packages and updated desktop software in the form of GNOME 3.8, KDE Plasma Workspace 4.10 and Mate 1.6.

The H will have an in-depth look at the features of Fedora 19 in the near future. In the meantime, users who want to try out the new release can first consult the release notes and then download it from where it is available as a 915MB ISO format image for 64-bit PCs or in a range of other formats with different desktops and for different architectures.

Update: The H has an in-depth look at the features of Fedora 19 in What's new in Fedora 19.
