Fedora 14 has it's entire code rebased to KDE 4.5 which means you can now enjoy all the latest features of the KDE 4.5 Plasma desktop. Among other things, Fedora 14 has the new gdb debugger that has been extended with new commands to make it easier to track down and fix excessive memory usage within programs and libraries. Spice, a complete open source solution for interaction with virtualized desktops has also been chipped in.
