The Fedora Project is pleased to announce the latest version of the Fedora operating system, Fedora Linux 37, is now generally available! Built by the expertise and hard work of the global community of Fedora contributors, Fedora Linux 37 brings a host of new features and capabilities, from new editions to desktop enhancements to an improved sysadmin environment.

To kick things off, we’re pleased to announce two new editions to Fedora Linux 37 - Fedora CoreOS and Fedora Cloud. Fedora CoreOS is the successor to Fedora Atomic Host, and provides an automatic update mechanism for hosting container-based workloads. The edition includes atomic updates and easier rollbacks, making it easier to manage and maintain container-centric infrastructure.

Fedora Cloud is back as its own edition, with the Cloud Working Group having seen an uptick in activity for Fedora cloud images. The Fedora Cloud edition provides a base to run public or private cloud deployments, with AMIs available in AWS Marketplace this week and other cloud provider images already available or on the way!

Refining the user experience with Fedora Workstation

Fedora Workstation is known for delivering the latest GNOME release, and Fedora 37 Workstation is no different. GNOME 43 makes it easier for users to understand the security details of system hardware and firmware, and more core GNOME apps are now ported to the latest GTK toolkit version for improved performance and visuals.

Fedora 37 Workstation also has options for a more lightweight footprint, with the ability to remove unneeded Firefox subpackages and gettext runtime packages that relate to unused languages. Fedora Spins and Labs also have a fresh round of updates, with Fedora Comp Neuro providing tools tailored for computational neuroscience and Fedora LXQt, a lightweight desktop environment.

Enhanced sysadmin capabilities

Fedora Server is designed to meet a variety of needs for sysadmins, with Fedora 37 Server adding new tools and capabilities to meet the evolving nature of these roles. The edition can now produce a KVM disk image to make it easier to run Fedora 37 Server in a virtual machine. Cryptographic advancements are also addressed with a TEST-FEDORA39 policy that previews changes for future Fedora releases, helping to limit the impact of cryptographic shifts like the deprecation of SHA-1 algorithms.

What now?

We’d love for you to try the new release, so please download it and take it for a spin (or read the release notes). If you’re already running Fedora Linux, we’ve made it easier to upgrade from existing versions. We also want your feedback, so if you run into a problem, let us know!
