Fedora 19 Alpha out now

by Rob Zwetsloot

Fedora 19 Alpha is the second of the three major releases this week, and this development release marks the beginning of public testing for the next major version of the distro

Fedora has had it a little rough of late, with Fedora 17 and 18 not being the community favourites of old. Moving ahead, work is well under away for Fedora 19, and the first development release has just been released – Fedora 19 Alpha.

New features coming to Fedora 19 are already available in the Alpha, this includes a small overhaul of the new Anaconda UI that many complained about during the release. There’s also new support for 3D printing, system restore points, and all the updates coding language and desktop environments. For the first time, educational coding environment Scratch will also be included with the Alpha.

You can grab the Alpha now from the Fedora website. This joins the Mageia 3 release candidate from yesterday, and Ubuntu 13.04 on Thursday in this big week of distros.
