Fedora Weekly News 239

Welcome to Fedora Weekly News Issue 239[1] for the week ending August
18, 2010. What follows are some highlights from this issue.

Our issue kicks off with news from the Fedora Planet, including why
private browsing isn’t as secure as you may think and how SELinux can
help, reflections on software advances since 1995, a report from the
Education pre-con at LinuxCon, and an experience of using Fedora on a
Droid X. In Marketing team news, work on Fedora 14 Talking Points in
advance of FUDCon 2011, calls for the F14 release slogan and discussion
around it. Two pieces with Fedora In the News this week, one from
interviews with kernel developers at LinuxCon, ncluding Fedora’s kernel
maintainer, Dave Jones, and coverage of Project Harmony, a multi-vendor
effort to streamline Linux contributor agreements. We’re very pleased
this week to welcome a new beat writer for Ambassadors, Sankarshan
Mukhopadhyay, who reports on new Ambassadors to the Fedora Project, a
great summary of discussion on the Ambassador list, and coverage of July
and August FAmSCO meetings. In Translation news, an update on Fedora 14
tasks, work on missing translations for GNOME apps in Fedora 13, and new
members to the Fedora Localization Project for Japanese and Low German.
In Design team news, a report on the created Fedora balloons, packaging
the Cantarell font, and some new contributions for F14 wallpaper. This
issue wraps up with details on security advisories issued for F12 – F14
packages over the past week. Enjoy FWN 239!
