21st April 2012, 06:44 PM
Welcome to Fedora Weekly News Issue 293 (http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/FWN/Issue293). The FWN 293 is a live news stream of the mid April 2012.

The lead news of the week comes from the major announcement, development, the Trade Press and Fedora Marketing, and Security Advisories symmetrically. The starting news is the Changes to the Packaging Guidelines through Announcing the release of Fedora 18 Beta followed by Fedora 17 Beta thread.

One of the breaking news of this month is Fedora 18 Release name voting and Poll for whether to continue naming releases. Meantime, the leading news is the Fedora 17 for Power Alpha by David Aquilina. In this issue, the community can get details of the Fedora 17 Beta Go/No-Go Meeting, Round 3, Wednesday, April 11, @17:00 Eastern and the declared GOLD for the community (the Fedora 17 Beta is declared GOLD).

Another lead news on Trade Press and Fedora Marketing giants of Fedora is that Fedora Project has announced the release of the first and only beta version of Fedora 17, the final version of which is due for publication on 22 May. An outstanding review has been an eye catching topic titled as the beefy Fedora could use a dash of miracle whip by Jason Brokes which sounds harmonious with the news HealthCheck Fedora: Where's the beef?

Security beat, meantime, deals and publishes several security notes at the Security Advisories Beat.
