Fedora 27: available and with news for you

Fedora 27.5.3

Fedora is one of the classic, a well-known GNU / Linux distributions that emerged in its day from Red Hat in a similar way to how openSUSE from SUSE did. If you are familiar with the Linux world, it is impossible that you do not know this distribution, and I can say little more about it. Only now the developers have blessed us with a new version, Fedora 27. It is available so that we can enjoy it from now on and you can download it from the official website of the project...

We have talked a lot about Fedora, and now with Fedora 27 we have all its benefits with many news that the developers have given us. You already know that from the web page that I left you in the first link you can download both the Workstation version for workstations (that is, for laptops and desktops like the ones we usually have), the server edition for servers and the Atomic version optimized for LDK (Linux-Docker-Kurbernetes).

Fedora 27 has taken longer than expected, something that Fedora developers have us used to with their usual delays. But the popular, flexible, and robust alternative is here and it does so with a few surprises up its sleeve. One of them is the integration of Mozilla Firefox Quantum which we have already talked about here in LxA, that is, the renewed and revolutionary version of Firefox 57. But it also incorporates the GNOME 3.6 version to update its default desktop environment, although there are also images with KDE Plasma, LXDE or LXQt.

Of course the rest of the packages have also been updated, among which is LibreOffice which comes in version 5.4, a fairly recent one. You already know that I recently told you about LibreOffice 5.4.3, the latest update that has come out at the moment. And the development work does not end here, the rest of the packages that you will find pre-installed have also been updated to newer versions, some bugs have been eliminated and the Linux kernel has been rejuvenated. What are you waiting to try it !?

    And what do you have to do if you already have fedora 26 installed, to update to fedora 27 without having to reinstall from scratch?

    Thank you.
