As we had news of it, today the alpha version of Fedora 26 has been released. This is the first development version of Fedora 26, a version that presents some of the novelties that the next version of Fedora will bring but has also been released also a new Fedora 25 ISO image, an ISO image that includes the latest updates to the Red Hat-based operating system.
The alpha version of Fedora 26 is interesting because it shows us some of the software that the distribution will have as Linux kernel 4.11, a kernel that we already have in the alpha version but only the release candidate.
Next to the kernel, Fedora 26 will have Gnome 3.24 and GCC 7, two programs and versions that we already knew about it, but it will also have the latest version of the LXQT desktop, being a new flavor that will be incorporated as of Fedora 26 in the Fedora development family. It is striking that LXDE does not disappear from the Fedora family, with the LXQT and LXDE flavors coexisting in Fedora 26.

Another type of software that we will find in this Fedora 26 alpha is OpenSSL 1.1.0, libpinyin 2.0, Boost 1.63.0, Ruby 2.4, Golang 1.8, Glibc 2.25, LDC 1.1.0, Docker Overlay 2, Zend Framework 3, PHP 7.1 , BIND 9.11 and Python 3.6.
Fedora 25 also has a new ISO image. In this case it is an image that contains the same version of Fedora but with security patches and bug fixes that have been released throughout this time, thus being a more stable and secure image than the ISO image from the Fedora 25 release.
The alpha version of Fedora 26 can be obtained through this link. Instead, the ISO image of Fedora 25 can be found through the official Fedora website, since it is the most current stable version that exists.
