The Fedora Linux community released Fedora 24 on June 21, providing the first new release from the group since the debut of Fedora 23 on Nov. 3. Fedora is a community Linux project backed by Red Hat that often has served as a place where new capabilities land first before later being integrated to Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL). Fedora 24 comes in three editions: Workstation, Cloud and Server, each targeted for specific deployment use-cases. Fedora 24 Workstation’s big new update is the integration of the GNOME 24 desktop environment, which provides users with an enhanced experience that includes improved search and usability features. Fedora 24 Cloud, meanwhile, now includes the OpenShift Origin platform, a Kubernetes distribution for container management and orchestration. Fedora 24 Server edition includes the new Freeipa 4.3 Update, featuring improved user access-management features. Additionally, Fedora is now embracing the Flatpack packaging system as an optional choice for users. In Flatplack, applications potentially can become more portable across multiple vendors and open-source Linux distributions. We look at highlights of the Fedora 24 Linux release.
