Fedora 18 postponed a third time
The Fedora project has postponed the release of the Fedora 18 alpha by a further week. The delay was caused by various problems with the Anaconda installer, which is being given a face lift that required major restructuring work in this version of the Linux distribution. A proposal to continue using the version of Anaconda that was used in version 17 of Fedora was recently dismissed by the Engineering Steering Committee.
The delay of the alpha has also caused the project to postpone the release of the beta and final versions; Fedora 18 is now scheduled to arrive on 27 November. This means that the project is now 3 weeks behind the original schedule because the alpha has been postponed by a week twice before; as the Fedora project occasionally also postpones beta versions, or the final release itself, it could be December before Fedora 18 becomes available.
