Exciting Features For Fedora 20 "Heisenbug"
Phoronix: Exciting Features For Fedora 20 "Heisenbug"
Assuming there's no major last minute snafus, Fedora 20 will be released in two week's time. Due to the multiple delays that hit Fedora 20 and not all features being completed in time, here's a look at some of the most exciting features that were finished and will be found in this next major release of the Red Hat sponsored Linux distribution...
Just upgraded through fedup. And I can report: the system feels a bit faster than Fedora 19, and fedup worked flawlessly.
Will probably wait a week or 2 after the release before fedup-ing. If not the actual OS then the upgrading process is bound to be somewhat problematic.
I fedupped a week ago and most everything (audacious. KVM, transmission-daemon, transgui, gnote, mcomix, gnome mplayer, libreoffice...) works just fine.
Gnome wise, it all seems to be running fine with noticeably smoother visual effects. Only exceptions are some shell extensions that had yet to update:
Personally, I use Enlightenment so it doesn't bother me much.
Will the Xorg1.15+Mesa10+DRI3 happen at the release?
Only this gives a chance for, finally, no-tearing on Gnome Shell with Intel graphics apparently
Mesa 10.0 might land as an update at some point, but the rest is a safe bet for Fedora 21.
