Fedora 26 Alpha Released

Apr 04, 2017

Comes with Gnome 3.24

The Fedora community has announced the alpha release of Fedora 26. According to the release schedule, Fedora 26 is scheduled to be released on June 27, 2017, but unlike Ubuntu, Fedora is not firm with release dates and they are known for delaying releases if things are not ready.

The alpha is not meant for production usage, it’s meant for testing and filing bug reports.

Ryan Lerch wrote in Fedora Magazine, “Fedora Alpha releases are provided for Fedora users to try out the upcoming release. More importantly, Fedora engineers want you to file bugs against the upcoming release. The Fedora 26 Changeset page on the Fedora wiki provides a list of new features provided in Fedora 26.”

Fedora 26 comes with newer versions of packages, including Gnome 3.24 and DNF 2.0. You can see the list of packages included in Fedora 26 online.

You can download and test Fedora 26 Alpa from the official download page.
