Fedora 24 now out with new Linux experience across the cloud, desktop and server
Red Hat’s community-driven open source operating system has been updated to Fedora 24. The new version brings an all-new Linux experience across the three distinct editions — Fedora 24 Cloud, Fedora 24 Server and Fedora 24 Workstation.
In its beta version, Fedora 24 comes preloaded with Glibc 2.23 (the latest GNU C Library model) to deliver better performance than its predecessor. The developer community can also utilise some improvements to POSIX compliance and GNU Compiler Collection (GCC) 6. Moreover, the Linux 4.5.7 kernel is there to offer overall stability on each of the different Fedora editions.
“Fedora 24 continues Fedora’s drive to provide the latest, powerful open source tools and components to a variety of end users, from developers to systems administrators,” Fedora Project leader Matthew Miller said.
Fedora 24 Cloud comes with OpenShift Origin. The Kubernetes-based distribution enables a smoother experience for building and launching containerised applications. There is also Fedora Atomic Host to let developers run Docker applications and start their developments directly from Cockpit.
Red Hat’s Fedora Project already has over a million users on its open source operating system. This user base could reach new heights with the release of Fedora 24. It also sets the ground for a new version of Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) and certainly takes Linux to new levels.
