The Fedora Store is live!

It's been a long time coming, but we now have a store for Fedora-branded items!

https://redhat.corpmerchandise.com/ProductList.aspx?did=20588

It's a part of the Red Hat Cool Stuff Store because that was the easiest way for us to be able to maintain an inventory. The list of available items is currently four (a pub glass, a t-shirt, a cap, and a water bottle) as a test. The best way you can help fill the store with more items is to buy the things that are there to prove that people want Fedora-branded goodies. So get shopping!

Fedora 19 End of Life

As of 6th of January 2014, Fedora 19 has reached its end of life for
updates and support. No further updates, including security updates,
will be available for Fedora 19. A previous reminder was sent on
December 10th [0].

Fedora 20 will continue to receive updates until approximately one
month after the release of Fedora 22.  The maintenance schedule of
Fedora releases is documented on the Fedora Project wiki [1].  The
Fedora Project wiki also contains instructions [2] on how to upgrade
from a previous release of Fedora to a version receiving updates.

Fedora 21 for IBM System z release

Hello everyone,

Fedora 21 GA release for the IBM System z (s390x) is here. This time
only 9 days after primary release. The difference against primary
Fedora is smaller than it was in Fedora 20, but we are still missing
packages related to nodejs (v8 engine not publicly ported to s390x) or
golang (but work is being done on gcc-go, so this should change in the
future) and most of ocaml modules (native port would be required). For
details see http://fedora.danny.cz/s390/rebuild/koji-compare-f21.txt

The links to the actual release are here:

http://mirrors.fedoraproject.org/publiclist/Fedora/21/s390x/ or

directly at

http://download.fedoraproject.org/pub/fedora-secondary/releases/21/Server/s390x/
http://download.fedoraproject.org/pub/fedora-secondary/releases/21/Everything/s390x/os/

Currently Fedora for s390x is available as the Server flavor (refer to
http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Fedora.next for more information). The
first directory contains the installation tree as well as one DVD ISO
with the complete release. There are plans on adding Cloud flavor in
the future, but it depends on s390x support in several related
projects. Everything as usual contains, well, everything. :)

For general Fedora documentation please see
http://docs.fedoraproject.org/

and Fedora 21 common bugs are documented at
http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Common_F21_bugs

Additional information about known issues, the current progress and
state for future release, where and how the team can be reached and
just anything else Fedora on IBM System z related can be found here:

http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Architectures/s390x/21

For architecture specific release notes, please read it as there are
changes in the interactive installation process. It's a wiki so don't
hesitate to add your knowledge there. You can find useful information
also in the previous release notes linked from the current ones. 

More information about Fedora on IBM System z can be found at
http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Architectures/s390x

Our team got expanded during the last year so my thanks also go to the
other team members and to everyone involved in making this happen!

Fedora 21 for Power Now Available

[ The latest version of this announcement can be found online
at https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/PowerPC/F21_PPC_release_announcement ]

We can say with great certainty Fedora for Power is pleased to announce
the release of Fedora 21.

Download this leading-edge, free and open source operating system now:

http://mirrors.fedoraproject.org/publiclist/Fedora/21/

Detailed information about the Fedora 21 release which Fedora for Power
is based on can be seen in the release notes:

http://docs.fedoraproject.org/en-US/Fedora/21/html/Release_Notes/index.html

== Supported Hardware ==

IBM POWER servers are the only systems fully supported by Fedora for
Power at this time. All the bare metal, PowerVM and PowerKVM
environments should work equally.

OpenPOWER systems might work, but they weren't tested.

Apple MacPPC systems are not supported, have not been tested and it is
expected the installer won't work. Please see the mailing list possible
updates. 

== Power-Specific Features ==

In addition to all of the standard Fedora 21 features, Fedora 21 for
Power also has the following changes:

- The installer for Fedora for Power is available as the Server flavor
only. 
- The Little Endian variant of the architecture has been added under
the identifier ppc64le.
- Support for 32-bit packages has been removed. 

== Maturity and Advanced Features ==

Sometimes it's not the big, new features that make a user's experience
better; it's the little enhancements or long-awaited tricky features
that really help make a new release the bee's knees. Fedora for Power
inherits all enhancements and changes from Fedora 21.

== Power-specific Known Bugs ==

- KVM guest installation on virtio disk is not possible (bug 1153080),
please select virtio-scsi or ibmvscsi in your guest definiton ... 

== Fedora Project Documentation and Common Bugs ==

Read the full release notes for Fedora 21, guides for several
languages, and learn about known bugs and how to report new ones:

http://docs.fedoraproject.org/

    Fedora 21 common bugs are documented at: 

http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Common_F21_bugs

This page includes information on several known non-blocker bugs in
Fedora 21, please be sure to read it before installing!

== Future Fedora for Power Development ==

Currently Fedora for Power is available as the Server flavor as the
outcome from the Fedora.next project. For the future we plan to expand
this offering also with the Cloud and Workstation flavors.

== Contributing to The Fedora Project ==

We hope that you're excited to have Fedora 21 in your hands and are
looking forward to using it and exploring its new features and many
improvements over Fedora 20. But that's not all! Fedora never stands
still, we're always working towards a new and better release and
sharing our work with the world. Want to be part of the fun? It's easy
to get involved!

There are many ways to contribute to Fedora, even if it's just bug
reporting. You can also help translate software and content, test and
give feedback on software updates, write and edit documentation, design
and do artwork, help with all sorts of promotional activities, and
package free software for use by millions of Fedora users worldwide. To
get started, visit https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Join today!

== Contributing to Fedora for Power ==

More information on Fedora for Power can be found at
https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Arch:PPC. To get involved in testing and
development of Fedora for Power, join us on IRC in #fedora-ppc on
Freenode, on the ppc mailing list, or on the general secondary mailing
list.

Announcing Fedora 21!

Fedora 21 Release Announcement
==============================

<http://fedoramagazine.org/announcing-fedora-21/>

The Fedora Project is pleased to announce the release of Fedora 21,
ready to run on your desktops, servers, and in the cloud. Fedora 21 is
a game-changer for the Fedora Project, and we think you're going to be
very pleased with the results.

Fedora.next and Fedora 21 Flavors
=================================

As part of the Fedora.next initiative, Fedora 21 comes in three
flavors: Cloud, Server, and Workstation -- whether you're using
Linux on your laptop, using Linux on your servers, or spinning up
containers or images in the cloud, we have what you need to be
successful.

Fedora 21 Base
--------------

Each of the flavors builds on the "base" set of packages for
Fedora. For instance, each flavor uses the same packages for the
kernel, RPM, Yum, systemd, Anaconda, and so forth.

The Base Working Group develops the standard platform for all
Fedora deliverables, which includes the installer, compose tools,
and basic platform for the other flavors. The Base set of packages
*is not* intended for use on its own, but is kept as a small,
stable platform for other initiatives to build on.

Highlights in the Fedora 21 Release
===================================

Fedora 21 Cloud
---------------

The Fedora Cloud Working Group and Special Interest Group (SIG) has
been busy leading up to Fedora 21. Cloud is now a top-level
deliverable for Fedora 21, and includes images for use in private
cloud environments like OpenStack, as well as AMIs for use on
Amazon, and a new "Atomic" image streamlined for running Docker
containers.

* Modular Kernel Packaging for Cloud

  Space is precious, and there's little reason to include drivers
  for hardware that doesn't exist in the cloud. As part of the work
  for this release, the cloud SIG and kernel team split the kernel
  into two packages. One package contains the minimum modules for
  running in a virtualized environment, the other contains the
  larger set of modules for a more general installation. With other
  size reduction work, the F21 cloud image is about 25% smaller
  than F20, making for faster deployment and more room to whatever
  *you* need.

* Fedora Atomic Host

  In early April, Red Hat announced Project Atomic, an effort to
  provide the tools and patterns for a streamlined operating system
  to run containers. The Fedora 21 release is the first to offer an
  "Atomic" host for Fedora, which includes a minimal set of
  packages and an image composed with rpm-ostree.

  While using the same RPMs as other Fedora offerings, the Atomic
  host lets you roll back updates (if necessary) as one atomic unit
  -- making update management much easier.

  Our Atomic image includes Kubernetes and Cockpit for container
  management, and will receive updates through the Fedora 21
  release cycle as rpm-ostree updates.

Fedora 21 Server
----------------

The Fedora Server flavor is a common base platform that is meant to
run featured application stacks, which are produced, tested, and
distributed by the Server Working Group. Want to use Fedora as a
Web server, file server, database server, or platform for an
Infrastructure-as-a-Service? Fedora 21 Server is for you.

* Fedora Server Management Features

  The Fedora Server flavor introduces new Server management
  features aimed at making it easier to install discrete
  infrastructure services. The Fedora Server introduces three new
  technologies to handle this task, rolekit, Cockpit, and OpenLMI.

  Rolekit is a Role deployment and management toolkit that provides
  a consistent interface to administrators to install and configure
  all the packages needed to implement a specific server role.
  Rolekit is at an early stage of development in Fedora 21.

  Cockpit is a user interface for configuring and monitoring your
  server or servers. It is accessible remotely via a web browser.

  OpenLMI is a remote management system built atop DMTF-CIM. Use
  OpenLMI for scripting management functions across many machines
  and for querying for capabilities and monitoring for system
  events.

* Domain Controller Server Role

  As part of the server role offerings available for Fedora 21, the
  Server flavor ships with a role deployment mechanism. One of the
  roles offered in 21 is the Domain Controller Service.

  The Domain Controller Service packages freeIPA's integrated
  identity and authentication solution for Linux/UNIX networked
  environments.

  A FreeIPA server provides centralized authentication,
  authorization, and account information by storing data about
  user, groups, hosts, and other objects necessary to manage the
  security aspects of a network of computers.

Fedora 21 Workstation
---------------------

The Fedora Workstation is a new take on desktop development from
the Fedora community. Our goal is to pick the best components, and
integrate and polish them. This work results in a more polished and
targeted system than you've previously seen from the Fedora
desktop. We want our desktop operating system to solve your
problems, not be your problem.

* Easy access to all your software

  The cornerstone of the Fedora Workstation is the Software
  installer, which lets you find all kinds of applications quickly
  and easily. The improvements to the Software installer in Fedora
  21 provide a responsive and fast user experience. In addition,
  Fedora packagers have worked with developers around the world to
  greatly improve the number of featured applications.

* Improvements to the Terminal application

  We want developers to have a great experience, so a strong
  Terminal application is absolutely important. We've integrated a
  set of additional features in the Terminal, such as:

  - Support for transparent backgrounds
  - Automatic title updates to help you identify different terminals
  - A simple toggle for disabling shortcuts in the Terminal
  - Search for Terminals by name in the GNOME desktop overview

* Experimental Wayland support

  Wayland is a new and exciting display server technology that will
  power Linux desktops of the future. With Fedora Workstation 21
  you can visit the future now, and see how well your applications
  work with Wayland. You can also experiment with making your
  applications take advantage of Wayland's new capabilities. Much
  of the core Wayland development comes from Fedora Workstation
  contributors, so this is your chance to try out Wayland straight
  from the source.

* DevAssistant

  We recognize developers need an easy and straightforward way to
  set up many different programming environments. In Fedora
  Workstation, we offer the DevAssistant developer helper, which
  takes care of this setup for a large number of language runtimes
  and IDEs.

  To provide the most flexible development environment possible,
  DevAssistant integrates with Fedora Software collections, to
  provide multiple versions of different languages to suit your
  needs. Software Collections allow you to install additional
  language support alongside the system software, without any
  conflicts. For example, you could use Software Collections to
  enable a separate version of Perl or Ruby without conflicting
  with the system version.

* Ease of installation

  We want the installation of the Fedora Workstation to be as
  straightforward and simple as possible. In Fedora Workstation we've
  distilled this process down to selecting the layout of your physical
  media, and then pressing "Install." (In fact, you can even let the
  installer choose the disk layout for you.) And because the future of
  installations is not optical disks, we ship with an easy to use tool to
  help you create bootable USB sticks -- just download a new Live image,
  right-click, and write to USB.

* Web service integration

  We recognize you have work to do, and you want to use the tools
  that let you get it done. That's why we're working to make all
  your applications in Fedora Workstation look and feel the same.
  With the ability to run HTML5 web services in a chromeless
  window, we aim to make your apps feel like a natural extension to
  your desktop. More integration upgrades are coming in future
  Fedora Workstation releases.

* Support for high resolution displays (HiDPI)

  Technology never stands still, and as a software developer you
  are used to using the best technology available. So we've spent a
  lot of time and effort on supporting the new generation of HiDPI
  displays found on new hardware like many new ultrabook models, or
  the Apple Retina display. That's probably why Fedora has been
  called the best of HiDPI.

* Exciting roadmap

  This Fedora Workstation release is not the end. It's the
  beginning of a new era for Fedora on the desktop. We have a
  roadmap lined up to bring a range of exciting new technologies to
  the Linux desktop:

  - Containers
  - Smarter virtual machines
  - Better development tools
  - Improved toolkit integration
  - More web integration
  - ...and much more

So if you want to be part of the future of the Linux desktop, get
on board now!

We use range voting in this process — vote for as many or as few
candidates as you like on a sliding scale. The candidate receiving the
most votes will serve for a full year-long term; this election only,
the runner-up will serve for a half term.
