Fedora Core Today, Fedora 11 will be unleashed upon the web. The release has been postponed for a few days, but this time it's for real. It comes packed with lots of changes, such as improved boot time, Nouveau as the default NVIDIA driver, and of course the latest and greatest version of various open source packages.

you can actually update between Fedora releases with yum, we just don't support or emphasize this method. If you ask our release engineering team and yum engineers they will give you a very long list of reasons why in-place upgrading can never be entirely a safe proposition. That's why we rather recommend upgrading via images or preupgrade, which can be made much more reliable. But in practice, some people do upgrade with yum and it often works. There's specific caveats for F10->F11 upgrading noted here:

some of the features of F11 are also in or partly in Ubuntu 9.04, I guess. Most of the rest should make it into 9.10. Fedora upstreams stuff pretty fast.
