    Phoronix: Fedora 20 Will Be Released Next Week

    After being pressed by repeated delays Fedora 20 "Heisenbug" has been given the go-ahead to be officially released next week...

    While the Dev and QA teams agreed to go with the release, the Release Engineering team was not present when the decision was made. All three need to give the green light before a release is made.
    Anyways, I believe Release Engineering will go with it and there will be no more delays.

    To those of you, who are impatient to try the final Fedora 20, here is the link to RC1.1, which if I understand correctly, will be used as the final image. http://dl.fedoraproject.org/pub/alt/stage/20-RC1.1/

    Downloaded Fedora 20 RC1 today and was surprised: positively, because the desktop was very polished, good looking and stable. Not what I expect from a bleeding edge distro. Negatively, because it didn't really seem that bleeding edge to me. Mesa 9.2, Linux 3.11, Firefox 25... inb4 500MB day0 updates.

    I think it was Adam that said that Mesa 10 and Xorg 1.15 may not come to F20, they may be held off until F21 (we'll see, maybe we'll get a nice surprise)

    But the kernel and firefox should get updates as always.

    There has been no history of Fedora announcing that they will do a release next week and retracting that. The final release images are already available. I am not linking to it since it has not been mirrored yet.

    This is very good to hear!

    I have a system that is a potential update target so I was on the Fedora web site yesterday and have to say I'm a bit disappointed with that site. Why? Finding information on the soon to be announced Fedora 29 was a pain in the you know what, I was expecting to be able to find a listing of the default software packages and found nothing. That could be me, but honestly a release a week away should be marketed better than what is seen on the Fedora web site. We are talking www.fedora project.org here. Also some parts of the site such as that associated with the FEL spin are very dated.

    Mind you I'm not complaining about Fedora which I've always liked as a distro. It is just that the web site (www.fedoraproject.org) seems to be a bit flashy and difficult for somebody that doesn't spend a lot of time there.

    This would be such a bull! Tearing on Intel GPU-s is fixable only by having the bundle land in Fedora!
    Bug 711028 - Tearing on Intel GPU - the CLUTTER_PAINT workaround

    Could you tell me who is this Adam you speak of (his involvment with Fedora development)?

    BTW, has anyone had a problem with inability to set menus_have_icons using gconf-editor?

    https://ask.fedoraproject.org/questi...context-menus/

    But it doesn't work on my current install. Does anyone know how to fix this?

    Fedora 20 (F18 -> fedup to F19 -> fedup to F20).
    It used to work on the F19 install. I've been using Faience icons theme since F19 and it was enabled while doing fedup, if it matters.

    What I tried:
    - disabling the Faience icon theme
    - setting the gconf settings also via sudo gconf-editor

    The post by Adam is: http://phoronix.com/forums/showthrea...068#post379068

    But keep in mind his wording is "I dont believe" and F20 is already shipping a Xorg 1.15 snapshot isnt it? So it may end up shipping regardless. Or they may selectively pull in the DRI3 and Present changes. Only time will tell right now

    Hold on, you were IN that thread, Bucic -_-

    Distrowatch is great for getting info on versions of core packages, though I agree it's a nice thing to have on a distribution's website.
