    Phoronix: Fedora 36 Is A Terrific Release Especially For Linux Enthusiasts, Power Users

    Fedora 36 is releasing this morning as what is yet another release in recent times of being a very robust and bleeding-edge yet stable and reliable Linux distribution. I've already been running Fedora Workstation 36 and Fedora Server 36 snapshots on various systems in my benchmarking lab and this release has proven to be quite solid while adding new features and polish on top of the excellent Fedora 35...

    I'm pretty sure this is the final iso. They just haven't updated their website yet.

      Yep should be the same as what was available since last week https://dl.fedoraproject.org/pub/alt/stage/36_RC-1.5/ as noted in https://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?pa...x-36-Next-Week

        Is font rendering on Fedora as good as on Ubuntu?
        Or does Fedora disable patented antialiasing and media codecs so everything looks ugly and I can't play media?

          Seems like a great update but I have a question, does fedora include "mutter triple buffering patch" like ubuntu?

            Nope, it does not.

              Fedora enabled ClearType font rendering in 2018 after Microsoft joined OIN. As for media codecs still not available in base Fedora but there is RPMFusion for that and some other things like Steam client or Nvidia drivers. It seems that RPMFusion is already available for Fedora 36. It's not very different from enabling non-free repositories in Ubuntu and even Fedora docs points to the RPMFusion.

                In case anyone else stumbles over the SCP deprecation in latest OpenSSH (e.g. when trying to connect to embedded devices using dropbear and not providing SFTP): You can use "scp -O" for the time being.

                    I've tested the April 27th ISO from the Fedora gaming spin (Nubara Project) last weekend. But the out-of-the-box gaming performance didn't impress me at all, tested with the in-game-benchmark of Company of Heroes 2. Even though it was an improvement over an older Rawhide release (20 fps > 33 fps), it is still noticeably slower than other distributions at stock on my hardware (around 40 - 45 fps on Tumbleweed and Endeavour). The good news is that one can get a vastly improved experience by compiling a Xanmod Kernel (at least 85 fps - you can also get to this level quickly by using Kubuntu + Xanmod and Mesa PPA). Just for reference, with a performance optimized EndeavourOS, I get 101 fps and around 93-95 fps on Windows 10 and 11.
