Fedora Weekly News 283

Welcome to Fedora Weekly News Issue 283[1] for the week ending August 11, 2011. What follows are some highlights from this issue.

FWN is back after a few weeks of summer quietude, and we’ve got several weeks’ worth of Fedora coverage for you! Kicking off this week’s issue, announcements from the Fedora Project, including awesome heavy metal news on a Fedora 15 release for IBM System z 64bit, details on the Fedora 16 alpha schedule and decisioning, and exciting details on hardened build support coming in Fedora 16. In QA news, details on the latest Fedora 15 Amazon EC2 Test Day, and a schedule for upcoming test days. Also more detail on Fedora 16 Alpha prep, oVirt node spin review and testing, and Instalatron anaconda testing framework details, to name but a few items. Security Advisories brings us a surprisingly short list of security-related software releases for the past three weeks, and our issue wraps up with news from the Planet Fedora, including FLOSSCamp 2011 and FUDCon India event reports, farewell news from Max Spevack, and updates from Máirín Duffy and Joerg Simon. Enjoy FWN 283!
