    "Linux 2.6.36 kernel"

    I think that kernel-2.6.35.6 is F14 kernel for now

    Of course in the future kernel mayby updated to 2.6.36, because 2.6.35 will lose official support in near future.

    Just one punctualization: F14 ships with kernel version 2.6.35, not 2.6.36.

    I doubt that they will update their kernel to 2.6.36 in Fedora 14. Fedora announced a more conservative updates policy a few weeks ago.

    Releases of the Fedora distribution are like releases of the individual packages that compose it. A major version number reflects a more-or-less stable set of features and functionality. As a result, we should avoid major updates of packages within a stable release. Updates should aim to fix bugs, and not introduce features,...

    Nice that catalyst 10.10 works well with this Fedora release. For Fedora releases 12, 13 and several other releases catalyst support was not there at release date.

    Good to hear that Fedora stable updates policy has changed and now is more conservative.

    /yawn. Version bump release like the others.

    Not saying there wasn't a lot of hard work put into the release, but from a desktop user's standpoint, I don't think there's anything exciting here.

    Next time, maybe.

    Actually, if your desktop usage requires virtualization (E.g. running Windows VM), F14 w/ SPICE is a major improvement.
