Fedora 26 launches today
Fedora's final builds usually face delays, but this time it looks like all the delays went to the early stages. The alpha release was postponed no less than three times, while the beta of Fedora 26 had to face two delays. Now, everything is on track, and the torrents for Fedora 26's final build are already up and running (according to many Reddit users).
The release notes are not available yet, but most of the changes have been unveiled already. These are the highlights of Fedora 26:
- LXQt spin introduced updates to all the others (KDE, Xfce, MATE, LXDE, Cinnamon, SoaS)
- openSSL 1.1.0
- DNF 2.0
- GCC 7
- python 3.6
- ruby 2.4
- GNOME 3.24
In addition to the above, most software packages are expected to get the latest updates as well - for example Firefox 54, now the default browser in Fedora once again, or LibreOffice 5.3.
Fedora 26 comes in three main variants - Workstation, Server, and Atomic (for Linux-Docker-Kubernetes (LDK) application stack), as well as multiple spins as mentioned earlier. The official website should be updated with all the details later today.
