Fedora 23 Beta Released

The Fedora Project announced release of Fedora 23 Beta, development release of upcoming stable Fedora distribution. It is expected that, final release of Fedora 23 will be ready by mid of october.

As usual convention of Fedora, this release announcement is applicable for different fedora varieties like workstation, server, cloud and other fedora spins.

From official release announcement:
Fedora 23 includes a number of changes that will improve all of the editions. For example, Fedora 23 makes use of compiler flags to improve security by hardening the binaries against memory corruption vulnerabilities, buffer overflows, and so on. This is a “behind the scenes” change that most users won’t notice through normal use of a Fedora edition, but will help provide additional system security. Likewise, Fedora 23 has disabled SSL3 and RC4 by default due to known vulnerabilities in the protocols. This means all applications that use GNUTLS and OpenSSL libraries have had the SSL3 protocol and RC4 cipher disabled.
