Fedora 17 release schedule slips by a week
The Fedora developers have decided to postpone the release of the Fedora 17 beta by a week. In an email to the developer announcement mailing list, Fedora Project Leader Robyn Bergeron has explained that the creation of a fourth release candidate was necessitated by bugs in the preupgrade package. This is the second time in the current development cycle that the schedule has slipped for a week.
This means that the Fedora 17 beta will now be released on 17 April, with the final release targeted for 22 May. The full release schedule is available on the Fedora Wiki. Delays in Fedora releases are not uncommon as the developers prefer to adjust their scheduling according to progress, rather than have an on-time but imperfect release.
