Fedora 20 released

Fedora 20, code-named “Heisenbug,” is available today, but don’t worry–it won’t disappear when you try to look at it. This release brings tons of new features paves the way for exciting work to come in future releases of Fedora. Let’s take a quick look at some of the highlights while you’re waiting for the download to finish. (See “How to Upgrade” below if you need a little help.) This may be the first time you can say, “I love this Heisenbug!”

New Desktop Goodness

Fedora’s stable desktop gives you the best balance of choice, usability, and up-to-date open source software. And with Heisenbug, you get the latest GNOME, KDE, Xfce, and other popular open source desktop environments so that you can choose the desktop that’s best for you. The default desktop sports the most recent GNOME release with quite a few enhancements and new applications (Maps, Music, and Software).

Fans of other desktops besides GNOME will enjoy the Fedora Spins for KDE, Xfce, LXDE, and others.

Cloud and Beyond

Fedora has been producing AMIs for Amazon Web Services (AWS) for some time as well as images that can be run in private clouds (like OpenStack), but this release marks a new focus on delivering images specifically tailored for public and private cloud environments. Check out the Fedora in the Cloud page to get started!

10th Anniversary of the Fedora Project

This release coincides with the 10th anniversary of the Fedora Project. Fedora 20 is an inflection point for the Fedora community. This release includes many small improvements that indicate maturing technologies that are crucial to the Fedora Project, as well as the larger Linux community.

I have been using it, 20 beta, for a month or so (more or less) and I have had no issues at all. I am glad they finally released it. Well, I have actually been using Fedora 20 JAM/KDE Spin, 64bit and not Fedora/Gnome.
