Red Hat 8.1 beta


I believe there have been a total of two beta releases of Red Hat 8.1. Are they both code-named 'Phoebe', or is that the name of only the first release, with the second having some other code-name?

What is Roswell? I read about this being some distribution from Red Hat, but I'm not clear on exactly what it is, and how it differs from the regular distribution.

What is Rawhide? I haven't gotten clear on this. My understanding so far is that this is some beta version of the Red Hat distribution. But is it more recent than Phoebe? Less recent than Phoebe?

What is Limbo? Same basic questions as above.

Raw Hide is the latest 'bleeding-edge' edition of RedHat to test. Have a look at this ftp://ftp.redhat.com/pub/redhat/linux/rawhide/

http://www.distrowatch.com/table.php...ibution=redhat tells you the names for the different versions of RedHat. 8.1beta2 phoebe is the latest.

I thought Phoebe was the name of the Red Hat 8.0 final Version. Maybe I'm wrong but pretty sure. Not read of any beta releases
since though not saying your wrong.
