Fedora 26 beta released; Final release is coming on July

Mr Eduar Lucena has announced availability of Fedora 26 beta for testing. This release announcement is applicable for different Fedora flavors like Fedora workstation, server edition, atomic host and other Fedora spins, lab editions..etc.

The final release of Fedora 26 is scheduled to release on July 2017. Unlike many other GNU/Linux distributions, Fedora releases are not just about packages updates. It is also about a fresh collection of innovations. Fedora releases comes with latest and greatest experimental technologies.

Some of the key highlights common in all Fedora 26 variations can be summarized as:
  • Fedora, always in the path of innovation, will ship with the latest version of the GNU Compiler Collection, also known as GCC, bringing the latest language features and optimizations to users and to the software we build. Also the Go Language is updated to the latest version, 1.8, which includes 32-bits MIPS support and speed
  • One of the most important changes is the addition of “blivet-gui” to the installer. This provides a “building-blocks” style partitioning GUI for sysadmins and enthusiast users who are familiar with the details of storage systems.
  • The Workstation edition of Fedora 26 Beta features GNOME 3.24, which includes important changes like Night Light, which changes the color temperature of the display based on time of day. It also includes the latest update of LibreOffice.
