Fedora 26 Beta Released

The Fedora Project is pleased to announce the immediate availability
of Fedora 26 Beta, the next big step on our journey to the exciting
Fedora 26 release in July.

Download the prerelease from our Get Fedora site:

* Get Fedora 26 Beta Workstation
https://getfedora.org/workstation/prerelease/

* Get Fedora 26 Beta Server
https://getfedora.org/server/prerelease/

* Get Fedora 26 Pre-Release Atomic
https://getfedora.org/atomic/prerelease/

Looking for Fedora Cloud Base? This is replaced by Atomic as a Fedora
Edition for the container use case, but we still produce it for those
of you who want to build up your own cloud-computing environment in a
more traditional way from https://cloud.fedoraproject.org/.

Or, check out one of our popular variants, including KDE Plasma, Xfce,
and other desktop environments, as well as images for ARM devices
like the Raspberry Pi 2 and 3:

* Get Fedora 26 Beta Spins
https://spins.fedoraproject.org/prerelease

* Get Fedora 26 Beta Labs
https://labs.fedoraproject.org/prerelease

* Get Fedora 26 Beta ARM
https://arm.fedoraproject.org/prerelease


Fedora's journey is not simply about updating one operating system
with the latest and greatest packages. It's also about innovation for
the many different platforms represented in the Fedora Project:
Workstation, Server, Atomic, and the various Spins. Coordinating the
efforts across the many working groups is no small task, and serves
as a testament to the talent and professionalism found within the
Fedora community.

As we move into this Beta phase of the Fedora 26 release cycle, what
can users expect?


Fedora-Wide Changes
===================

Fedora, always in the path of innovation, will ship with the latest
version of the GNU Compiler Collection, also known as GCC, bringing
the latest language features and optimizations to users and to the
software we build. Also the Go Language is updated to the latest
version, 1.8, which includes 32-bits MIPS support and speed
improvements.

One of the most important changes is the addition of "blivet-gui" to
the installer. This provides a "building-blocks" style partitioning
GUI for sysadmins and enthusiast users who are familiar with the
details of storage systems.

Also, we've made and included many improvements in security, improving
user experience and reducing the risks of the digital life.


Fedora Editions
===============

The Workstation edition of Fedora 26 Beta features GNOME 3.24, which
includes important changes like Night Light, which changes the color
temperature of the display based on time of day. It will also
include the latest update of LibreOffice.

Our Atomic Host Edition also has a lot of improvements, including
more options to run containers, the latest version of the docker
container platform, the cockpit manager and the atomic CLI, improving
the way containers are managed, making being a sysadmin easier.


Spins and Labs
==============

The Fedora Project is proud to announce two new versions: The LXQt
Spin, a lightweight desktop supporting the latest version of the Qt
libraries; and the Python Classroom Lab, a new version focused in the
teaching and learning of the Python programming language. And, in the
Cinnamon Spin, the desktop is updated to the latest version.


Alternative Architectures
=========================

We are also simultaneously releasing 64-bit F26 Beta for ARM
(AArch64), Power (both little and big endian) and s390x
architectures. You'll also find minimal network installers and the
Fedora 26 Beta Cloud Base image here:

What is the Beta Release?
=========================

A Beta release is code-complete and bears a very strong resemblance
to the third and final release. The final release of Fedora 26 is
expected in July. If you take the time to download and try out the
Beta, you can check and make sure the things that are important to
you are working. Every bug you find and report doesn't just help you,
it improves the experience of millions of Fedora users worldwide!
Together, we can make Fedora rock-solid. We have a culture of
coordinating new features and pushing fixes upstream as much as we
can, and your feedback improves not only Fedora, but Linux and Free
software as a whole.


Issues and Details
==================

Since this is a Beta release, we expect that you may encounter bugs
or missing features. To report issues encountered during testing,
contact the Fedora QA team via the mailing list or in #fedora-qa on
Freenode. As testing progresses, common issues are tracked on the
Common F26 Bugs page. https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Common_F26_bugs
