Now that Fedora 21 was finally released last week, you may be wondering when Fedora 22 is tentatively planned for release...

Fedora 22 already has various features being proposed and new packages entering Rawhide, but the Fedora 22 release schedule has yet to be firmed up. Last week on the Fedora Wiki the basic outline of the Fedora 22 was put up with the "no earlier than" release dates.

For the Fedora 22 schedule in its current form on the Wiki, the Fedora 22 Alpha release will come no earlier than 10 March, the beta release no earlier than 14 April, the final Fedora 22 Freeze no earlier than 5 May, and the official Fedora 22 release no earlier than 19 May.

The specific dates for Fedora 22 will likely be finalized in the next few weeks, assuming Fedora 22 doesn't end up in the numerous delays it experiences almost every release cycle. On a scheduling note, there's still ongoing talk about moving Fedora to a tick-tock release cadence and other work to try to get Fedora Linux updates out on a predictable schedule twice a year.

Stay tuned for more Fedora 22 coverage on Phoronix in the weeks ahead as its development starts to heat up.
