Fedora 38 Released with New Features

Apr 19, 2023

Fedora 38 is now available to download a week earlier than previously expected.

The developers of Fedora Linux have gifted us with yet another stellar release, by way of number 38. It's a surprise, given the team rarely delivers early but it's certainly an early gift from a dedicated team.

Fedora 38 stars Gnome 44 and Linux kernel 6.2. The version of Gnome used in Fedora is straight-up standard, so there are zero changes made by the Fedora team.

Some of the new features found in Gnome 44 include expandable folders in the Files file manager as well as the icon/thumbnail mode for the file picker.

You'll also find full access to Flathub in the Software application, which means you'll find even more flatpak apps available for installation through third-party repositories.

Other additions include Mesa 23.0, Ruby 3.2, gcc 13, LLVM 16, Golang 1.20, and PHP 8.2.

With the release of Fedora 38, the team has made some significant changes to the website and has included a few new spins, including one for Budgie, Sway, and one for mobile devices called Phosh.

You can read more about the latest release from the official blog and download an ISO from the download page.
