Fedora 21 Release Candidate 1 Awaits Your Testing

Written by Michael Larabel in Fedora on 28 November 2014 at 09:04 AM EST. 14 Comments
The first release candidate to Fedora 21 is now available for testing ahead of its official release next month.

Those wishing to participate in testing the release candidate to Fedora 21 can find the download information and testing requests via this mailing list post with the RC1 release having just happened minutes ago.

Overall, Fedora 21 is running great in all of my tests on a plethora of different hardware. Fedora 21 I've found to quite likely be my favorite/best release of Fedora ever going back to the Fedora Core days. See the many Fedora 21 articles with my benchmark results, opinions, and other information on the new features and changes of Fedora 21.

As of now, Fedora 21 is still pending for release in two weeks on 9 December. The release of Fedora 21 is coming one year after the release of Fedora 20 due to all of the work surrounding "Fedora.Next" with splitting into the Workstation, Cloud, and Server products along with other big changes. Fedora 21, as with past Fedora releases, was also plagued by delays early in its development cycle due to blocker bugs.
