    Re: Announcing the release of Fedora 28

    FOR YOUR INFORMATION - A noticeable change to the Workstation Live ISO is the removal of an option to set a root password during installation with anaconda. This is by design and not a bug.


    All other ISO including the netinstall version of workstation are not affected by this policy change. Whether they do alter them for Fedora 29 remains to be seen.

    Respins built 20180524 by the Respins SIGIRC: chat.freenode.net Ports: 6697/9000 (SSL) Channel: #fedora-respins

    This set has the 4.16.11 kernel which was a security release, with several mitigations against Spectre Variant 4 (Speculation Store Bypass)

    This set is also carries various other package updates and saves you post install updates in excess of 706M

    This set contains torrents for faster crowd sourced downloading. A private tracker is used for those and it is EXPLICTLY requested that *** NO *** additional trackers of any kind are added for any reason. If you'd like to have one (Legal tracker) added contact a SIG Administrator in the above mentioned IRC channel. *** NO Exceptions ***

    We want to thank Fedora QA for running the following test on our isos

    Fedora 26 is end of life on Friday 1st June 2018. After May 29th 2018, packages in the Fedora 26 repositories no longer receive any security, bugfix, or enhancement updates. Furthermore, at that point the community adds no new packages to the F26 collection.

    The Fedora Project highly recommends you upgrade all systems to Fedora 28 or Fedora 27 before the EOL date. Upgrades are an easy way to keep your system setup while you move to the latest technology.
