Submission + - Fedora 18 release slips another week (fedoraproject.org)

An anonymous reader writes: The next major release of the Fedora Project's GNU/Linux distribution (named Spherical Cow) was originally scheduled for November 16th. However, an ambitious set of new features has resulted in the project slipping way past it's scheduled release. It had fallen 3 weeks behind before even producing an alpha release and 9 weeks behind by the time the beta release was produced. A major redesign in the distribution installer seems to have resulted in the largest percentage of bugs blocking it's release. The set-back marks the first time since 2005 in which there was only one major Fedora release during a calendar year instead of two. Currently, the distribution is scheduled for release on January 15th.
