Hello, friends. Fedora is one of the most important desktop Linux distributions out there along with Ubuntu, Linux Mint, OpenSUSE, and even Debian. Recently Ubuntu released a new version and a few hours ago Fedora did the same. So in this post, we will tell you the news about Fedora 34.
Recently the development team announced the arrival of Fedora 34 in all its versions. The Workstation version which focuses on the desktop, and in particular, it’s geared toward software developers who want a “just works” Linux operating system experience comes with GNOME 40 as the main new feature.
In this version, we find many updated packages apart from the Graphical Environment highlighting the inclusion of Linux 5.11 to handle modern hardware. In the spin-off theme, Plasma now uses Wayland by default. Also, Xfce 4.16 and LXQt 0.16.0 make their debut in the XFCE and LXQT spin-offs.
If you are an audio content creator, then you will notice that PipeWire replaces PulseAudio and Jack. as the audio server. While many may not like it, it’s certainly a step forward in Wayland integration. Proof of this is that some Xorg-x11 packages have been removed.
No matter what variant of Fedora you use, you’re getting the latest the open-source world has to offer. For example, Ruby 3.0 is included in this release along with Golang 1.16. So if you want to develop applications in these languages, this version looks like an ideal choice.
How to get Fedora 34?
Fedora 34 is now available for public download and you can visit the download section of the project and download it from there.
You can also try some of the spinoffs that give us the power of Fedora 34 but with other desktop environments. To do so, go the section dedicated to them.
If you already have Fedora 33 on your computer, you can then migrate to Fedora 34 from this post.
So, enjoy Fedora 34.
