Fedora 27 Enters Its Beta Freeze
Written by Michael Larabel in Fedora on 6 September 2017 at 01:35 PM EDT. 14 Comments
With the quick F27 cycle given the Fedora 26 delays in getting that previous release out the door, this week already marks the Fedora 27 beta freeze.

Not only is it the freeze for preparing the F27 beta release, but this also marks the code completion deadline for planned Fedora 27 changes. If the code changes aren't in place, they risk being postponed until Fedora 28.

This also marks the first Fedora cycle not engaging in alpha releases but straight to beta as part of their focus on delivering better and more reliable quality throughout the development cycle. Skipping the alpha release process may also help ensure Fedora 27 and future releases ship closer to their targeted release dates.

More details on this week's Fedora 27 deadlines via the devel list.

Fedora 27 Beta should be released on either 19 or 26 September, the final freeze on 10 October, and the goal to ship Fedora 27 on 24 October but with acknowledging the possibility it could be delayed to 31 October.
