Fedora shuffles beta back another week
Fedora 18 will take a little longer still. On Monday, the Fedora Project developers decided to postpone the release of the beta version of Fedora 18, and the subsequent final release, by a week. The reason for the postponement, the fourth delay for Fedora 18 so far, is ongoing problems with the new version of the Anaconda installer. The developers' assessment of the issue is that they will be able to get the issues under control with another week.
Therefore, according to the revised schedule, the "feature complete" deadline for the release has now been set back to 16 October, with the beta release arriving on 30 October. The projected final release has slipped out of November and is currently set for 4 December. However, this date, as always, is not set in stone and the developers will delay the release if problems arise during the beta and finalisation of Fedora 18.
