"The GNOME programs in the alpha version of Fedora 9 are derived from 
the 2.21 development branch from which GNOME 2.22 should be emerging in 
mid March. The browser will be a preview version of Firefox 3, the core 
rendering elements of which are in a separate XULRunner package. Preview 
versions of other applications such as OpenOffice 2.4 or X-Server 1.5 
are also used. The development team have also improved the installation 
program so that existing ext2, ext3 and NTFS partitions can now be 
reduced in size. In addition, it is now possible to create encrypted 
Linux partitions directly during installation."
