Fedora Atomic Host, the distribution's Project Atomic version for deploying containerized apps, wishes to dramatically change its release process with Fedora 23.

Right now Fedora Atomic is released alongside the other flavors of Fedora Linux on the roughly six month release schedule. However, due to upstream Atomic moving very fast, in the period of going from alpha to beta to final, Fedora Atomic is already dated. The developers admit that by the time the last two Fedora Atomic releases shipped, they were "basically obsolete."

The proposed change is moving Fedora Atomic away from the six-month distribution release and onto separate releases every two weeks. Atomic users can find out more via this Fedora Wiki page.
