Gnome 2.14 has landed!

Probably old news to most but gnome 2.14 has arrived in the repository. Yum update should do the trick.

Things missing I hope will arrive shortly ...

Totem 1.4 & Gstreamer 10.4

Great job. FC5 is looking good ...

Okay, but how does it feel? Hope the charts on it's promo page are accurate and it acutally *IS* faster. Unfortunatelly I can't check it by myself since my laptop is awaiting the official FC5 release

Please share your thoughts about its speed in general. Cya

I feel it's quicker.

I moved to a new laptop when moving to FC5 test releases, but bear with me.

You can see the spec of my desktop machine from my sig. It's got 1Gb RAM and fairly speedy disks. There's not much holding it back on the hardware front. It runs FC4.

The FC5 laptop is a Thinkpad T40 with 1.5GHz Pentium M and 512b RAM. The laptop drive is much slower than the desktop.

Despite this, the laptop comes across as faster in nearly all areas of desktop use. Windows come up faster, terminal text flies past, screen redraws are better, the menu doesn't pause when fetching the icons etc.

Nothing concrete to go on, but I'll be sticking FC5 on my desktop and the Thinkpad as soon as I can. Shame that Gaim 2.0 isn't going to be out in time (hoping I'm speaking too soon on that one).

Cheers

Duncan

Definitly alot faster on my machine, even non gnome specific things run quicker, like firefox, which was at 15 seconds startup, is now under 5, same with terminal.. login to desktop time is also much faster than in fc4 for me, seems like things are turning out great , n as for gaim, i just uninstalled fedoras, and installed the one off the website, didnt complain about anything, and works great!

It's nice to hear that. Maybe FC5 would let me stay with gnome instead of KDE which was a lot faster on FC4... Looking forward for the final release!

You will be pleased ...

Gnome 2.14 is very nice. Besides the speed enhancements there is the integration of beagle, the new clear looks themes, improvements to Nautilus and more ...

To fully appreciate all of the improvements you simply have to try it ...

Cheers
