The Fedora Project developers approved yesterday, July 9th, in a FESCo meeting the 256-color terminal support for their upcoming Fedora 18 operating system.

OK, so what 256-color terminal support means, right? Well, it enables terminal programs to use the enhanced color capabilities of modern terminals, by default. At the moment, terminals use a color palette of 8 colors. More details can be found in this article.

Among other features approved for Fedora 18 in yesterday's meeting, we can mention improved CIM management, PowerPC ppc64p7 subarch support for RPM and YUM, Rails 3.2, Fontconfig 2.10, and Perl 5.16.
