FEDORA --
Red Hat's Christian Schaller has written another status update concerning the state of Fedora Workstation 23 while also looking ahead to Fedora Workstation 24.

In regards to Fedora Workstation 23, Christian shares the GNOME Wayland experience is going well (he's been running Wayland exclusively now for days), the system firmware update support is working its way out there, Google Drive support is present in GNOME's Nautilus, ambient light sensor support is saving battery life for laptops, and XDG-APP is available in a tech preview form.

For Fedora Workstation 24 they are looking for more XDG-APP action for better securing Linux apps and opening up other tech possibilities. Fedora Workstation 24 will also have improvements to GNOME Software, improvements to graphics drivers, and many other changes known so far.

More details can be found from Christian's personal blog post. Fedora 23 is planned for release in early November (pending no more delays) while Fedora 24 should make it out around May.
