RALEIGH, N.C. (April 27, 2021) — The Fedora Project, a Red Hat, Inc. sponsored and community-driven open source collaboration, today announced the general availability of Fedora Linux 34, the latest version of the fully open source Fedora operating system. Fedora Linux 34 further improves the overall user experience with key updates like GNOME 40, while still providing a foundation for new use cases, like edge computing, with improved support for hardware watchdogs for automated system recovery.
Fedora Linux 34 continues the Fedora Project's emphasis on delivering the latest open source updates with all levels of users in mind, from beginners to experts. New capabilities and enhancements include:
Fedora CoreOSis an automatically updating, minimal operating system for running containerized workloads more securely and at scale. It is available in three different streams. The stable stream is offered with changes only reaching that stream after spending a period of time in the testing stream. The next stream represents the future. The project plans this to be used to experiment with new features and also test out rebases of its platform on top of the next major version of Fedora. A rebase to Fedora Linux 34 has been in the testing stream during the beta period and is rolling out to the stable stream now, and the next stream will advance to future development based on Fedora's "Rawhide" development branch.
With the global, dynamic challenges of 2020, the Fedora Linux community has remained active with its continued outreach to new contributors so the project can benefit from the new energy and contributions they bring.
Additionally, Fedora Linux 34 features a new project logo developed openly with community input that incorporates a more readable design, open source typeface and brighter coloring.
