Hi All,
 
The Fedora development team would like to announce that Fedora 2.2 will be
released on Friday, January 19, 2007.    
 
This new release will contain many significant new features and
enhancements,
including:
 
-  Fedora repository is now a web application (.war) that can be installed
in
any container
-  Fedora authentication has been refactored to use servlet filters (no
longer Tomcat realms)
-  A new Fedora installer makes it easy to get started with Fedora (with
both
"quick" and "custom" install options)
-  GSearch service (backed by Lucene or Zebra) - flexible, configurable,
indexes any datastream
-  Journaling service to create a backup/mirror repository
-  New checksum features for datastreams
-  Support for Postgres database configuration
-  Standard system logging with Log4J
-  Over 40 bug fixes
-  Many other enhancements
 
Be on the lookout for the release announcement the new year!   Also, there
will be opportunities to talk with the Fedora development team at Open
Repositories 2007 (http://openrepositories.org/).
 
Best Regards,
Sandy
