Fedora 9 codename ‘Sulphur’ has been release at 13th, May 2008. Fedora 9 continues to build upon a tradition of innovation as the community Linux distribution that offers the latest, cutting-edge features with continued delivery of quality and impact. It features the first non-destructive live USB with persistence, and marks the first major KDE 4-based distribution. Other highlights include improvements and enhancements for OpenJDK, GNOME 2.22, NetworkManager, PackageKit, the Anaconda installer and Firefox 3 Beta 5 browser, among others.
The Fedora 9 Live images can now be added to an existing USB key using either a Linux or Windows application, without the need to remove data, repartition or reformat the USB key, resulting in a bootable, portable Fedora system. Using the persistence feature, users can download and store data, and remove and add software as on any normal Fedora system. We believe that this non-destructive, persistent live USB system is the first of its kind, anywhere.
Fedora’s KDE team, a community effort led by volunteer contributors, has integrated KDE 4 into Fedora 9. KDE 4 includes a new desktop and panel with many enhanced concepts, an integrated desktop search feature, a new visual style, and a new multimedia API and hardware integration framework. Fedora 9 also includes FreeIPA, a powerful new toolset for system administrators to manage identity policy and auditing across mixed computing environments. These additions to Fedora 9 are a testament to Fedora’s focus on leading advancement in free and open source software.
