Fedora 27 Released


From Fedora Magazine

Quote:
The Fedora Project proudly announces the release and general availability of the Fedora 27 Workstation and Fedora 27 Atomic editions. Fedora 27 incorporates thousands of improvements from both the Fedora Community and various upstream software projects.

You can download Fedora 27 Workstation right now from getfedora.org, to be followed shortly by the Fedora 27 Atomic Host later today. Alternatively for users already running Fedora you can use the operating system itself to upgrade to Fedora 27. You can also download the Fedora 27 Beta Modular Server.

Fedora Workstation

The Workstation edition of Fedora 27 features GNOME 3.26. In the new release, both the Display and Network configuration panels have been updated, along with the overall Settings panel appearance improvement. The system search now shows more results at once, including the system actions.

GNOME 3.26 also features color emoji support, folder sharing in Boxes, and numerous improvements in the Builder IDE tool. Many thanks to the GNOME community for their work on these features. For more information refer to the upstream release notes at Gnome 3.26 Release Notes.

Fedora Atomic Host

Fedora Atomic 27 now defaults to a simpler container storage setup. Furthermore, it offers containerized Kubernetes, flannel and etcd. These changes bring flexibility for users to choose different versions of Kubernetes, or to not use Kubernetes at all. This release ships with the latest rpm-ostree, now with support for base package overrides. Cockpit is also updated to the latest version. It includes support for Cockpit Dashboard installation on Atomic Host via RPM package layering.

What about Fedora Server?

The Fedora Server is being retooled in line with our modularity efforts. These changes allow Fedora Server users to experience a more modular operating system. The benefits include managing multiple components on different lifecycles, as opposed to upgrading the entire system every release or two to stay current. The Modularity documentation site provides more information about this exciting new concept. The Fedora 27 Modular Server Beta release is available today, with a Final release scheduled to follow roughly a month later.
Have any LQ members updated to Fedora 27?

I have. Updated from scratch. So far, no serious problems to report.
There's always frustrations, but like usual they come, not from the OS (or with KDE, in this case), but from the applications. In my case, I've been unable to get both Vivaldi and Qupzilla to play html 5 videos, which makes me more reliant on Firefox than I'd like, but I sorta knew that would happen.
