This Week in Linux: Debian, Fedora, & Slackware





linuxThis week in Linux brought the last developmental release of openSUSE 12.2 and Fedora’s approval of the MATE desktop for version 18. But besides that Debian Wheezy progresses, Fedora is getting a new installer, and Slackware deploys new package browser online.

Debian Wheezy, or what will be Debian 7.0, is progressing forward in development. Despite nearly 600 bugs remaining on the to-do list no talk of a delay has been overheard in the hallowed halls of Debian as of yet. Of course, Debian isn’t on any kind of schedule and all we really have are educated guesses of the release date. Debian Wheeze went into new version freeze nearly a month ago. Another bit of good news out of Debian team is that the next version, Debian 8.0, will be codenamed "Jessie" after the cowgirl in Disney’s Toy Story.

If you follow the Fedora blogs, you may already know that Duffy et.al. have been working on a new installer targeted for Fedora 18. Well, today, Adam Williamson wrote that the new UI will probably appear in Rawhide "very soon!" That means screenshots will soon appear too. Features are still being finalized at this time, but Adam says it’ll probably make it into the Alpha. No word yet from Sabayon if and when they’ll make the upgrade.

And finally this week, Slackware has improved their online package search engine. Alien BOB, also known as Eric Hameleers in some circles, posted today that the new browser has gone live. Developed by Mario from slackverse.org, the package browser takes advantage of a new mirror infrastructure designed to handle a "flood of download requests" by redirecting them to a mirror server.  So, go test it.  In other news, Patrick Volkerding announced last week that Current branch of Slackware has gone beta. Slackware 14.0 is on its way!
