Following a half-year of development and three weeks after the release of the new version of Ubuntu, the Fedora Project has introduced the Fedora 9 Linux distribution. As usual for Fedora, the distribution, with its Linux 2.6.25 kernel, Glibc 2.8, and current versions of GNOME and KDE, is highly up to date. With its pre-release version of X Server 1.5 for 7.4, it is so current that the proprietary AMD and Nvidia drivers don't yet work with the free version of Fedora 9.

The numerous changes introduced in the new version correct a number of flaws in the distribution that have been the subject of criticism for some time.
