Fedora Core The beta version of Fedora 9 has been released. It comes with GNOME 2.22, KDE 4.0.2, Firefox 3.0 beta 5, PackageKit, Kernel 2.6.25-rc5, and much more. "The Beta release is the point at which we really want and need the wider community's help with testing. Beta is a point of much greater stability in Fedora's development branch, but some fixes continue to occur to improve usability, performance, and stability."

"Until now i have always used gnash. Are there any rationale behind the decision to choose swfdec over gnash?"

1. swfdec is now included in GNOME (specifically swfdec-gnome).
2. GStreamer-based (though I believe Gnash is also)
3. It has hooks to install missing codecs (via Codeina or Ubuntu's codec installer), which Gnash currently doesn't.
