    2017-09-05 - Fedora 27 Beta Freeze

    Fedora 27 Beta package freeze is now in place. If you don't know what this means read on.

    here's the new default background


    Hi all,

    Today is an important day on the Fedora 27 schedule[1], with two
    significant cut-offs.

    Today is the Beta freeze[2]. This means that only packages which fix
    accepted blocker or freeze exception bugs[3][4] will be marked as 'stable'
    and included in the Beta composes. Other builds will remain in
    updates-testing until the Beta release is approved, at which point the Beta
    freeze is lifted and packages can move to 'stable' as usual until the Final
    freeze.

    Today is also '100% code complete deadline' Change Checkpoint[5], meaning
    that Fedora 27 Changes must now be code complete, meaning all the code
    required to enable to the new change is finished. The level of code
    completeness is reflected as tracker bug state ON_QA. The change does not
    have to be fully tested by this deadline'.

    Finally, Fedora is not doing Alpha releases[6] anymore by keeping Rawhide
    at alpha quality.

    Regards

    Mohan Boddu

    User Experience

    Rawhide will be more stable and be suitable for use on a daily basis by all developers and tech enthusiasts.

    Anyone hit by the shim bug on F27 and Rawhide about two weeks ago?

    Was quite the disaster ...

    not personally, F27 is confined to a VM. I haven't faked an UEFI setup although I could in there. The shim has been buggy since F25 for my notebook, it's why I keep Fedora installed on a USB thumb drive. Every time there is a kernel branch upgrade rather than a point release it would end up bricked, so I now keep windows and Fedora separate and neither can interfere with the other.

    It seems like F26 was only just released. Short cycle for this one I guess.

    it does appear shortened, it's looking like a 4-month release schedule even allowing for slippage into November.

    Yeah this one is a short one to recoup with release schedule because F26 was delayed more then planned. And probably to get a new version of Gnome out earlier.

    Re: 2017-09-05 - Fedora 27 Beta Freeze

    Why not upgrade GNOME for F26? Other spin DE get upgraded after release when the new version hits stable. MATE for example has been backported many times over the years to older versions of Fedora.

    It would be better to do that than rush an entire OS re-base through just to get back on schedule.

    One advantage of the freeze is that the small bug fixes can be done. Another is documentation and translation.

    26 was headed to a rough start, and probably buggiest 2X release

    here's hope 27 will be better

    Re: 2017-09-05 - Fedora 27 Beta Freeze

    What version of samba will Fedora 27 start with? Is it going to be the first with samba 4.7 with a usable dc or should I keep upgrading my rawhide and wait for Fedora 28?

    Koji is a good indicator what is planned, bodhi is confirmation. You can check for package versions there.

    To answer your question, it seems like Samba 4.7 is included in Fedora 27. https://bodhi.fedoraproject.org/updates/?packages=samba
