Fedora 15, available: Welcome, GNOME 3

What we were announcing for some time, we have been monitoring the Preliminary versions ,But we already have with us. Fedora 15 Lovelock is available in the Fedora websites ,And also we have the release notes and the official announcement of the release.

Fedora 15 Lovelock comes with a radical change in the desktop environment: GNOME 2.32 pass to GNOME 3 and in particular GNOME Shell ,An interface that offers a very different user paradigm that we drove so far and we have to get to know it better.

Besides this, in Fedora 15 we find many significant improvements, such as Support native filesystem Btrfs, Which is the default system chosen for installation, maybe that we see in Fedora 16 - but it is available when we prepare the partitioning scheme.

The reporting system of crashes and errors, ABRT, has also been improved, along with a more efficient resolution of problems with SELinux. The Live image compression has been done with XZ instead of gzip, which saves 10% space.

The best Power Management ,The inclusion of LibreOffice as office suite, the arrival of Firefox 4 and of course the presence of two alternative desktop environments -KDE SC 4.6 and Xfce 4.8 completed a distribution that does not stop there and further proposed improvements for developers (such as a suite aimed at those who do research in the field of robotics) and system administrators.

You can find full details on the distribution of two key documents: the
official announcement and the much larger Release Notes. And of course, Fedora 15 can be downloaded to start testing as soon as possible from the Official Website ,Or via these download links, complemented with downloads via BitTorrent :
