Fedora 16 released
The Red Hat sponsored Fedora Project has released the sixteenth version of its Linux distribution, code-named "Verne"; it has been dedicated to Dennis Ritchie. It includes GNOME 3.2, KDE 4.7, LibreOffice 3.4 and version 3.1 of the Linux kernel, as well as other major improvements. System administrators will also notice several changes – the Fedora developers have switched to the GRUB 2 bootloader and used GPT (GUID Partition Table) for partitioning disks.

An extensive overview of these and other advances in Fedora 16 is available in an article on The H Open:
