In an ongoing effort to prevent premature kitten death, the Fedora Project is ecstatic to present the availability of Fedora 10 (Cambridge) Alpha. Test now, make it better now, keep Cambridge on schedule, and protect the kittens in the future.

The Alpha release provides the first opportunity for the wider community to become involved with the testing of rawhide:

  • Alpha represents a sanitized snapshot of rawhide, which is Fedora's development branch and sees rapid changes before becoming the next major release
  • The Alpha should boot on the majority of systems, providing:
    • A look at what new features are to be included in the next release
    • A way to provide feedback and bug reports to help ensure that the next release is as good as possible.
