Fedora 23

This version of Fedora is not as exciting as past 21 or 22, however it will include some interesting under-the-hood features. Since there are not many changes specific to spins I will list them together.

  • Firmware upgrades for UEFI 2.5+.
  • Fedora 23 will feature Python 3 and Perl 5.22.
  • Mono stack updated from version 2.1 to Mono 4.0.
  • Unicode 8.0 support.
  • SSLv3 and the RC4 cipher are now disabled by default.
  • SELinux will store policies under /var/lib/selinux/.
  • Fedora 23 will have a Cinnamon spin.
  • Fedup has been integrated in DNF.
  • LibreOffice 5 will be default in this release.
  • Fedora 23 Atomic Host will be released every two weeks to keep up with the fast life cycle.
  • Fedora 23 Cloud will feature Docker 1.8.
  • Wayland improved HiDPI compatibility.

GNOME 3.18

Maybe the most exciting change for not-too-technical people will be the new version of GNOME 3.18 which is keeping up the hard work to win back many unsatisfied users. And let me say this: they’re really working hard.
