    Fedora is a leading-edge, free and open source operating system that continues to deliver innovative features to many users, with a new release about every six months.

    Download it now:

    http://fedoraproject.org/get-fedora

    Detailed information about this release can be seen in the release notes:
    http://docs.fedoraproject.org/en-US/...Release_Notes/

    ** What's New in Fedora 19? **

    The Fedora Project takes great pride in being able to show off features for all types of use cases, including traditional desktop users, systems administration, development, the cloud, and many more. But a few new features are guaranteed to be seen by nearly anyone installing Fedora and are improvements that deserve to be called out on their own.

    A complete list with details of each new feature is available here:
    http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Releases/19/FeatureList

    == Make new things ==

    Would you like to play? Whether you're a developer, maker, or just starting to learn about open source development, we have what you need to bring your ideas to reality. Here's a peek at some of our new tools:

    * Developer's Assistant is a tool for new developers that helps you to get started on a code project by offering templates, samples, and toolchains for a variety of languages. And when you're finished, you can publish directly to GitHub!

    * 3D modelling and printing are supported with OpenSCAD, Skeinforge, SFACT, Printrun, RepetierHost, and other tool options. Get printing without having to download binary blobs or run Python code from git.

    * OpenShift Origin makes it easy for you to build your own Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) infrastructure, allowing you to enable others to easily develop and deploy software.

    * node.js is a popular Javascript-based platform for those building scalable network applications or real-time apps across distributed devices.

    * Ruby 2.0.0 moves into Fedora but keeps source-level backwards compatibility with your Ruby 1.9.3 software. We're also giving you a custom Ruby loader to use to easily switch interpreters.

    * MariaDB offers a truly open MySQL implementation and is now the default MySQL option in Fedora.

    == Deploy, Monitor, and Manage ==
    You don't have to work so hard when your machines are doing it for you. Regardless of how many you have, Fedora 19 helps you boot-manage your systems and gives you the tools you need for diagnosis, monitoring, and logging.

    * systemd Resource Control is one of many systemd enhancements in this release. It lets you modify your service settings without a reboot by dynamically querying and modifying resource control parameters at runtime.

    * Kerberos administrators no longer need their clients to sync their clocks or to have reverse DNS records carefully setup for services. Fedora 19 also includes Kerberos-enabled, LDAP replicated, two-factor authentication for FreeIPA.

    * Checkpoint & Restore lets you checkpoint and restore a process. It is useful for issues like process failure or moving a process to another machine for maintenance or load balancing.

    * OpenLMI is a common infrastructure for the management of Linux systems that makes remote management of machines much simpler.

    == Desktop Environments and Spins ==

    GNOME 3.8 brings new applications such as clock and improvements to the desktop including privacy and sharing settings, ordered search, frequent applications overview, and additionally provides the ability to enable GNOME Classic ("classic mode") for a user experience similar to GNOME 2 built out of a collection of GNOME Shell extensions. Refer to https://help.gnome.org/misc/release-notes/3.8/ for more details.

    KDE Plasma Workspaces 4.10: A modern, stable desktop environment, KDE Plasma Workspaces 4.10 includes new features for printing and screenlocking, better indexing of files, and improved accessibility features. Refer to http://www.kde.org/announcements/4.10/ for more details.

    MATE Desktop 1.6 introduces a large number of improvements to this traditional, GNOME 2-like desktop interface. Refer to http://mate-desktop.org/2013/04/02/mate-1-6-released/ for more details.

    == Spins ==
    Spins are alternate versions of Fedora. In addition to various desktop environments for Fedora, spins are also available as tailored environments for various types of users via hand-picked application sets or customizations.

    Interest-specific Spins include the Design Suite Spin, the Robotics Spin, and the Security Spin, among others. Other available desktop environments, in addition to the GNOME 3.8 desktop which is shipped in the default version of Fedora 19, as well as those highlighted above, Xfce, Sugar on a Stick, and LXDE.

    Got it. All's okay...except for the single-click on folders, etc. Gotta find my single-click option before I over-stress my finger.

    They better not have dropped that! Double-clicking is so 1999, and what about touch-screens…

    Is it not under Files (application menu)->Preferences->Behaviour any more?

    Re: Announcing the release of Fedora 19!

    Running the live DVD now. But ... in a moment of inexplicable silliness ... I accdientally fetched the Gnome version instead of XFCE! <....>

    So I can say without reservation about Gnome 3.whatever ... <....> Ayup. Pretty much what I expected.

    The wallpaper is ok, I guess ... in a Vegas casino carpet sort of way. <....>


    Functionally ... okey dokey so far. Lots of good things to say about nouveau. Both monitors found and active in the right config at boot. Nice.

    Re: Announcing the release of Fedora 19!

    Aside from grub2-mkconfig, everything for me works. I have 4 disks, one with F18 clean, one with windows and mint14, one with F19 and one with F19spin.
    The F18 version detects and builds the grub.cfg as one expects. Nothing overlooked.
    F19 is leaving out the distribution Mint and the F19. If I use the spin it leaves out F19 and mint*. If I use the non-spin (release version), it leaves out Mint and the F19 spin

    Fortunately, I can use the pc bios to select the drive from where I want to boot.
