Fedora 26 released with GCC 7, Golang 1.8 and thousands of other improvements

Keeping the habit of publishing stable releases on every 6 months, Fedora project has released Fedora 26, latest stable release of independent GNU/Linux distribution backed by Red Hat Inc. This release brings thousands for updated packages from various upstream projects and other under the improvements to provide more reliable and stable experience to the end users.

Fedora 26 release includes variations like Workstation edition - the desktop cum laptop edition, server edition and Fedora atomic host for deploying on cloud instances. You can also  find different Fedora spins and lab editions if you are looking for an alternative desktop environment or a customized distribution oriented towards some specific fields like security assessments, gaming or design respectively.

Fedora Workstation is built on GNOME (now version 3.24). If you’re interested in other popular desktop environments like KDE, Xfce, Cinnamon, and more, check out Fedora Spins. Or, for versions of Fedora tailored to special use cases like Astronomy, Design, Security, or Robotics, see Fedora Labs. STEM teachers, take advantage of the new Python Classroom, which makes it a breeze to set up an instructional environment with Vagrant, Docker containers, a Live USB image, or traditional installation.

If you want a Fedora environment to build on in EC2, OpenStack, and other cloud environments, there’s the Fedora Cloud Base. Plus, we’ve got network installers, other architectures (like Power and aarch64), BitTorrent links, and more at Fedora Alternative Downloads. And, not to be forgotten: if you’re looking to put Fedora on a Raspberry Pi or other ARM device, get images from the Fedora ARM page.
