Announcing a new release of F11 for the XO-1  
Today I have released Build 6 of F11 for the OLPC. This build which runs on the XO-1 contains an updated F11 release with both the Sugar and Gnome desktops.

For those who are not aware the OLPC project is now based on Fedora, and many Fedora contributors are active in development of Sugar which is the default desktop environment for the OLPC.

The OLPC folks are currently working on the testing the next generation hardware for the XO-1.5, and Fedora will be the default installation on it as well.

If you have an XO-1 and would like to test out this latest release you can read more about it here.

If you do not have an XO-1 but would like to try out the Sugar Desktop it is available in the Fedora repositories for both F-11 and Rawhide. You can install it by doing yum groupinstall "Sugar Desktop Environment"
