28th March 2010, 11:40 PM
Welcome to Fedora Weekly News Issue 218 (http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/FWN/Issue218) for the week ending March 21, 2010. What follows are some highlights from this issue.

First off, Fedora Weekly News will be changing our release schedule. Look for availability of new issues coming out on Wednesday each week, instead of Monday. This is to allow our beat writers to cover weekend happenings and news to a better degree, and accommodate schedules for writers. On to FWN 218!

We start this issue off with announcements including the shiny new Fedora 12 re-spin, which offers updates on this version through March 3, 2010. If you're just starting out with a new install, this will save you at least 550MB in updates over the default install!
In Fedora Development announcements, notification to feature owners of the 3/23/10 Beta Freeze for Fedora 13.
In news from the Fedora Planet, some outcomes from the recent Marketing Fedora Activity Day (FAD), availability of a new version of Eclipse Linux Tools, and musings on how not to run a community.
In Marketing news, many pointers to the recent Marketing FAD activity and outcomes. In Ambassador news, several reports from last week's Chemnitzer Linuxtage 2010, in Chemnitz, Germany.
The Quality Assurance beat brings a fresh approach, with coverage on the most recent Test Day, on Fedora 13 changes to disk management, via the udisks (previously DeviceKit-disks) backend and the Palimpsest front end.
Also details on Fedora 13 acceptance testing and planning, and details on the new release process wiki documentation. This issue rounds out with Fedora security advisories released in the last week. Please enjoy FWN 218!

We're also pleased to note the availability of Fedora Audio Weekly News (FAWN), an audio version in Ogg Vorbis format for a few past FWN issues that one of our contributors has begun. Find it on the Internet Archive (http://www.archive.org/search.php?query=subject%3A%22FWN%22) and have a listen!
