Fedora 30 officially arrives, includes GNOME 3.32

Fedora 30 Four weeks ago we published an article announcing the launch of the beta of what would be the last version of one of the most popular Linux operating systems. Today we have to do the same, but echoing the Fedora 30 Official Release. As we read in its informative noteThis new version comes six months after the release of Fedora 29. Project Fedora says development has been fast, but it has given them time to make a lot of changes.

One of the most outstanding novelties that comes with Fedora 30 is the latest version of GNOME, that is, GNOME 3.32, a graphical environment that includes a new visual style (new UI, icons and the entire desktop in general). Although they mention this novelty, it is also available in graphic environments Plasma, Xfce, LXQT, MATE-Compiz, Cinnamon, LXDE and SOAS.

Fedora 30 is available on 8 desktops

All versions include GCC9, Bash 5.0, and PHP 7.3. Besides, also new versions of many packages are included, among which there are application updates.

To upgrade from a previous version, all you have to do is go to GNOME Software / Updates. If no screen appears, click the reload button. Once it appears, you just have to choose the "Update" option. Moreover, also can be done from the terminal, for what should be followed this tutorial from their official website, which is basically typing these commands:

sudo dnf upgrade --refresh
sudo dnf install dnf-plugin-system-upgrade
sudo dnf system-upgrade download --releasever=30

The above commands will download and prepare the system for the update. To apply it, we will write this other command:

sudo dnf system-upgrade reboot

This last command will cause the computer to restart and begin the installation. Now we would just have to wait for the changes to be applied. Once started, we would already be in Fedora 30.

You can download Fedora 30 from here.

      Hi Eduardo. Well, thanks for the note. I thought I had modified it, but it seems that it was not.

      A greeting.
