Fe­dora 26 to bring out GNOME 3.24 desk­top en­vi­ron­ment

OpenSource For You - - Fossbytes -

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.
