IconFedora 12 has been released today. "I'm proud to announce the release of Fedora 12, the latest innovative Linux distribution from the Fedora Project, a global, collaborative partnership of free software community members sponsored by Red Hat."

The new features include the Linux Kernel version 2.6.31, GNOME 2.28, KDE 4.3, an improved KVM virtualization stack with memory deduplication and libguestfs, and smaller and faster updates thanks to delta updates enabled by default and XZ compression

It also comes with better webcam support, improved mobile broadband support, support for BlueTooth audio devices, uPnP audio MediaServer and surround sound in sound events in Pulseaudio, KMS enabled by default in the Nouveau driver, a Moblin graphical interface for netbooks, an SELinux sandbox, and many other improvements.
