Fe­dora 24 now out with new Linux ex­pe­ri­ence across the cloud, desk­top and server

OpenSource For You - - FOSS BYTES -

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.
