Just waiting for the updates

I hate waiting. But this time I have to wait for many good stuff(hopefully).

 First of all there will be Fedora Core 6 available to public on 17 October. Fedora is one of my favorite Linux distribution. And I am eager to install it on my system.


Invision Power Board 2.2 will also be released soon. I’ve tried the Invision Power Board 2.2 Beta release and I think this new updated version is worth the hassle. The prising scheme is also being changed for IPB customers, but as I’ve already got the Perpetual License, This change will be in my favour.


Now the firefox 2 is scheduled to be released very soon. There are many new features in this new version like:

  • Built in Phishing Protection.
  • Search suggestions now appear with search history in the search box for Google, Yahoo! and Answers.com
  • Changes to tabbed browsing behavior
  • Ability to re-open accidentally closed tabs
  • Better support for previewing and subscribing to web feeds
  • Inline spell checking in text boxes
  • Search plugin manager for removing and re-ordering search engines
  • New microsummaries feature for bookmarks
  • Automatic restoration of your browsing session if there is a crash
  • New combined and improved Add-Ons manager for extensions and themes
  • New Windows installer based on Nullsoft Scriptable Install System
  • Support for JavaScript 1.7
  • Support for client-side session and persistent storage
  • Extended search plugin format
  • Updates to the extension system to provide enhanced security and to allow for easier localization of extensions
  • Support for SVG text using svg:textPath

Now come to the Joomla. Joomla is one of the best open source CMS(Content Management System) currently available. The new version (Joomla! 1.5 Beta) will be released on 12th of October. As stated in the oficial Joomla site the goals for the Joomla! 1.5 release are to:

  • Substantially improve usability, manageability, and scalability far beyond the original Mambo foundations.

  • Expand accessibility to support internationalisation, double-byte characters and Right-to-Left support for Arabic and Hebrew languages.

  • Extend the integration of external applications through Web Services and remote authentication such as the Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP).

  • Enhance the content delivery, template and presentation capabilities to support accessibility standards and content delivery to any destination.

  • Achieve a more sustainable and flexible framework for component and extension developers.

  • Deliver backwards compatibility with previous releases of components, templates, modules and other extensions.


There are some other stuff scheduled to be released very soon. And now, I am eagerly waiting for the changes. 🙂
