Hello Linux Geeksters. After a series of delays, Fedora 20 Beta “Heisenbug” has been released yesterday, being now available for download.
Among others, Fedora 20 Beta comes with Gnome 3.10.x and support for the Wayland system compositor, or KDE 4.11.x, Kernel 3.11.x, improvements for both ext4 and BTRFS file systems and better support for Intel, AMD and Nvidia graphical cards.
For those who don’t know yet, the Final Change Deadline has been scheduled for the 26th of November and the final version of Fedora 20 Heisenbug will be released on the 10th of December, if no delays will occur. Unlike Ubuntu, which has the release dates scheduled for fixed days, the Fedora systems often delay their releases, in order to fix what does not work properly.
The final version of Fedora 20 will bring the following enhancements:
- support for the ARM architecture
- support for thin clients configuration during OS installation
- virtual machine snapshow user interface with virt-manager
- will update some programming languages: Ruby on Rails 4.0 Perl 5.18
- Network manager improvements.
