Fedora 34 Beta is out today as the march is on towards this latest installment of this Red Hat sponsored Linux distribution.

It should come as no surprise with Fedora continuously living on the bleeding-edge of open-source innovations, but Fedora 34 is going to be another big and exciting release. Particularly on the Fedora Workstation front, Fedora 34 is bringing GNOME 40 to the desktop, Btrfs transparent file-system compression is enabled, PipeWire is by default in place of PulseAudio, there is a new i3 desktop spin, and many other Fedora 34 changes.

Fedora 34 beta is out this morning while the official F34 release is expected before the end of April.
