Fedora Logo Fedora developer and Red Hat employee Paul W. Frields has announced that Fedora 11, code named "Leonidas", has reached its end of life. Originally released in early June of 2009, Fedora 11 included the 2.6.29 Linux kernel, a new design and a number of software updates, such as OpenOffice 3.1 and a pre-release version of Firefox 3.5. As of today, no new updates, including security updates and critical fixes, will be available. The developers strongly advise all Fedora 11 users to upgrade to Fedora 12 or 13 to continue receiving updates.

The release cycle for the Red Hat sponsored community distribution is usually relatively short with a new version being released approximately every six months. According to the current Fedora release policy, maintenance for the last-but-one release ends one month after current major release is made available, in this case Fedora 13.
