Fedora 37 Beta Available

Sep 12, 2022

The Fedora development team announced the beta for version 37 of the open-source operating system would be released on time on September 13, 2022.

The next iteration of the Fedora 37 operating system has finally reached beta and is now available to download and install. This was announced on Fedora Hyperkitty along with the announcement that the final freeze for Fedora 37 would hit Tuesday, October 4.

As far as features in Fedora 37, you can look for plenty of changes, such as updates to the LLVM 15 compiler, LXQt 1.1, a preview of the new Anaconda Web-based installer, support for Raspberry Pi 4, Linux kernel 5.19 (the latest mainline kernel), GNOME 43 (which includes a revamped Quick Settings), a new GTK4/libadwaita port of Files (which also includes the new adaptive sidebar, icon emblems, and rubberband selection), WebExtension API support in GNOME Web, high-resolution scroll wheel support, direct scanout support (to aid multi-monitor setups), server-side decorations now include essential color support, as well as a reference KVM VM disk image.

For anyone wanting to test the new beta of Fedora 37, the default x86_64 version can be downloaded from the official Fedora download server. If you’d rather try out one of the spins (such as Cinnamon, KDE Plasma, LXDE, LXQt, Mate, SoaS, Xfce, or i3), they can be downloaded from the Spins directory.
