From ArsTechnica:

The developers behind the Fedora project have announced the official release of Fedora 17, codenamed Beefy Miracle. The update includes the latest version of the GNOME desktop environment and a number of other improvements.

Fedora is a community-driven Linux distribution that is sponsored by Red Hat. It serves as a testbed for new functionality that is later included in Red Hat Enterprise Linux. It tends to be closely aligned with the upstream Linux desktop ecosystem and is often slightly ahead of the curve on adopting new technologies.

The new version of Fedora includes GNOME 3.4, which was released at the end of March. As we wrote in our GNOME review, the 3.4 update introduced some significant design changes. The GNOME developers are working to simplify applications, removing menu and toolbar clutter, and moving towards simple layouts that look good when maximized.
