Fedora 27 Beta Hit By A Second Delay
Written by Michael Larabel in Fedora on 21 September 2017 at 05:30 PM EDT. 41 Comments
Last week it was decided to delay the Fedora 27 beta due to bugs while this week they've been forced to delay the release a second time.

The first beta delay wasn't too bad as the F27 schedule already had a built-in "rain date", in acknowledging Fedora's frequent release delays. But today a second unplanned delay is pushing back F27 Beta by at least one more week. This will now also push back the Fedora 27 final release by at least one week.

There are still a handful of blocker bugs ranging from VC4 issues on the Raspberry Pi, e2fsck issue, the backgrounds not being different from F27, and other blockers.

As a result there is today's delay and the stakeholders will again meet in another week to see if Fedora 27 beta is ready to ship.
