Fedora Linux 36 is officially out now, after a number of delays as the Fedora team don't like to rush things out when they're not ready. Here's what's new.
With their main desktop edition being Fedora Workstation which is now running GNOME 42, they tend to stick to plain vanilla GNOME and not make too many tweaks there. So there's no big extra special bells and whistles when it comes to Fedora releases that you wouldn't have seen in new versions of GNOME. Fedora's Matthew Miller mentions "Fedora Workstation focuses on the desktop, and in particular, it’s geared toward users who want a “just works” Linux operating system experience.".
Fedora continues it's "First" foundation to include all the latest software so expect tons of upgrades to everything. For NVIDIA users, be aware that Fedora 36 now defaults to Wayland. Hopefully you won't see too many issues but they seem to think it's stable enough. A curious one though, since NVIDIA requested the folks at Canonical to go back to X11 for Ubuntu 22.04.
You'll find with Fedora 36 the likes of Linux Kernel 5.17, Mesa 22.0 drivers and OpenSSL 3.0 and so it should work nicely with the latest hardware.
If you do plan an upgrade from 35 to 36, ensure you've run all your normal updates first, as some "very important upgrade-related bugs" have been solved.
Sometime over the next week I'll be doing the upgrade, hopefully it will go smoothly. As this will be likely my first full distro version upgrade ever when using Fedora.
