Announcing the release of Fedora 28

Hey everyone! It’s May, right around Mother’s Day in many countries, and that means it’s time for the next Fedora operating system release: Fedora 28 is here!

If you’re already using Fedora, you can upgrade from the command line or use GNOME Software for an easy graphical update — upgrade instructions here. We’ve put a lot of work into making upgrades simple and fast. In most cases, this will take half an hour or so, bringing you right back to a working system with no hassle. (Personally, I ran the commands on my main desktop right before bedtime last night, and came back to a perfectly working system when I woke up.)

What’s new in Fedora 28?

The headline feature for Fedora 28 Server is the inclusion of the new Modular repository. This lets you select between different versions of software like NodeJS or Django, so you can chose the stack you need for your software. Interested? Check out the documentation for using modules. Also of note: 64-bit ARM (Aarch64) is now a primary architecture for Fedora Server.

Fedora 28 Workstation has big news too. For the first time, we’re making it easy for users to enable certain third-party software sources, including proprietary Nvidia drivers. We’ve worked for a long time to figure out the right way to do this without compromising our ideals, and I think the opt-in approach we’re trying now does it well. Read more in the Magazine article on third-party repos, and also check out other F28 Workstation news.

Fedora Atomic Host adds one of my favorite features from my former life as a sysadmin: automatic updates. This is off by default — see the AutomaticUpdatePolicy option for rpm-ostree, and this blog post for more information. Fedora Atomic Host also includes Kubernetes 1.9 and the podman tool.

As always, there’s great new stuff across the whole distribution — read more in the release notes.

Many flavors of Fedora

Great news, especially about the NVidia drivers!
I'm still using Kali and Slackware, don't think I'll be moving to Fedora anytime soon.
