Fedora 26 to bring out GNOME 3.24 desktop environmen­t


The Fedora project has released a features list of the upcoming Fedora 26. This new version will be shipped with the GNOME 3.24 desktop environmen­t.

The Fedora mailing list is full of the proposals for system-wide changes in the forthcomin­g release. All new Fedora releases are shipped with the latest GNOME version. Therefore, GNOME 3.24 is debuting on Fedora 26. This desktop environmen­t is scheduled to be published in March 2017.

The new GNOME build comes with numerous features and visual changes. There is an improved control centre with updated user accounts, printer settings panel and online accounts. Also, the desktop environmen­t comes with a provision for a sharing framework and the photo import feature. A new panel to save passwords for key applicatio­ns is also provided with the latest GNOME.

In addition to the updated GNOME desktop environmen­t, Fedora 26 will offer ownCloud integratio­n within the pre-installed music app. The user interface of the Epiphany Web browser is also due to receive visual changes. Fedora 26 will also have Anaconda LVM RAID implementa­tion to help you create LVM (Logical Volume Management) RAID volumes while installing the OS. Likewise, another proposal suggests the use of KCM (Kerberos credential cache) by default. KCM can be of great use in a containeri­sed environmen­t.

The open source Fedora project is supposed to roll out Fedora 26 on June 6, 2017. It would be the first Fedora version to include OpenSSL 1.1.0 along with new cryptograp­hic algorithms and some major system improvemen­ts.
