    Linux Distribution OS Fedora 33 Beta Version Releases

      

    Fedora creates an innovative, free, and open source platform for hardware, clouds, and containers that enables software developers and community members to build tailored solutions for their users.

    Fedora 32 is the current version released on April 28,2020. And now, Fedora announce the immediate availability of Fedora 33 Beta. You can see the following changes that are comfirmed to be available in Fedora 33. According to blog post, Fedora 33 will release at the end of October.

    BTRFS as default filesystem

    All of the desktop variants of Fedora 33 Beta including Fedora Workstation, Fedora KDE, and others will use BTRFS as the default filesystem instead of ext filesystem.
    BTRFS offers some really compelling features for users, including transparent compression and copy-on-write.

    GNOME 3.38 Desktop Environment

    Fedora 33 Workstation Beta includes GNOME 3.38, the newest release of the GNOME desktop environment. It is full of performance enhancements and improvements.

    GNOME 3.38 now includes a welcome tour after installation to help users learn about all of the great features this desktop environment offers. It also improves screen recording and multi-monitor support.

    Fedora Workstation

    Fedora 33 Workstation Beta also provides better thermal management and peak performance on Intel CPUs by including thermald in the default install. Fedora 33 Workstation Beta includes animated backgrounds by default.

    Fedora IoT

    Fedora IoT is geared toward edge devices on a wide variety of hardware platforms. It is based on ostree technology for safe update and rollback. It includes the Platform AbstRaction for SECurity (PARSEC), an open-source initiative to provide a common API to hardware security and cryptographic services in a platform-agnostic way.

    Nano as terminal text editor

    Another major system-wide change to Fedora 33 is the default terminal text editor. Fedora 33 Beta defaults to using nano as the editor. nano is a more approachable editor that is more welcoming to new users. Now with Fedora 33, GNU Nano will replace Vi to become the default text editor across all of Fedora’s editions.

    Enable EarlyOOM By Default

    Fedora 33 KDE Beta enables earlyOOM by default, as Fedora Workstation did in the previous release. This helps improve system responsiveness on systems that are running out of memory.

    Other updates

    Fedora 33 Beta includes updated versions of many popular packages like Ruby, Python, and Perl. .NET Core will now be available on Fedora on aarch64, in addition to x86_64. 

    Also dropping a few older versions: Python 2.6 and Python 3.4 are retired. The httpd module mod_php is also dropped, as php-fpm is a more performant and more secure PHP module.
