Many under the armor improvements and a lot of changes, new features, and new graphical experiences: here we are, the new Fedora 31 release.
Obviously, the big GUI step forward for Fedora Workstation is the latest GNOME 3.34 update, which brings some visual changes, different functions, and real performance improvements.
Fedora 31 also drops the 32-bit support, so now you can’t find 32-bit ISO images on Fedora Downloads. Fedora Media Writer and the Fedora 31 x86_64 DVD ISO are available on the page and they make it really easy to give Fedora a try. Another lost is about Docker package: it has been removed from Fedora 31. It has been replaced by the upstream package moby-engine, which includes the Docker CLI as well as the Docker Engine.
“The Fedora Project aims to bring leading-edge innovation to our users, and Fedora 31 delivers on that by bringing some of the latest advancements in open source technology to the operating system.”Matthew Miller | Fedora Project Leader
Fedora 31 provides new tools and features for general users as well as developers: updated compilers and languages, support for Cgroupsv2, switching RPM compression to ztsd and updated support for RPM 4.15, the latest version of the RPM Package Manager for enhanced performance and stability across all versions of Fedora.
You can easily upgrade your Fedora 30 to the new version with both a graphical upgrade method or the classic command-line method. Here the link to the article ‘Upgrading Fedora 30 to Fedora 31’ from Fedora Magazine.
So, Fedora 31 is an exciting and powerful release of one of the top Linux distributions, for it we must thank the hard work of thousands of Fedora community members and contributors.
You should immediately give it a try because it’s beautiful, fun and amazingly fast!
