Red Hat, Inc. on the behalf of the Fedora project today announced the release of Fedora 22 saying, "Fedora 22 once again delivers on the Fedora.next initiative, which established three distinct editions of Fedora – Fedora Cloud, Fedora Server, and Fedora Workstation. After extensive work in delivering the first distribution to embrace Fedora.next (Fedora 21), Fedora 22 marks a return to Fedora’s traditional six month release cadence."
Red Hat's new Fedora Linux comes with a better desktop, but the real improvements are in the cloud and server updates.
If you didn't notice, Fedora 22 was released today. Today I refreshed the Fedora 22 OS Template I made for OpenVZ and uploaded it to contrib. For fun, I thought I'd build a MATE Desktop GUI container right in front of your eyes... and then connect to it via x2go. Enjoy!
The open organization trumps the traditional corporate structure because it is about putting innovation first, says Jim Whitehurst, author of ‘The Open Organization’ as well as the CEO of Red Hat.
We started not long time ago, just a few days after F22 Beta release and it was challenging to finish all the work for these websites, collect informations from Spin SIGs, get legal approval, make new translation resources and and and.
Fedora 22 Workstation was released today and it ships with the latest stable GNOME 3.16, a new default package manager and other interesting changes. Let's take a look at what's new!
Announcements only (not reviews):
The Fedora project has announced that Fedora 22 is finally available for download for all the new flavors, Workstation, Server, and Cloud.
Quite a few people are going to be installing Fedora 22 in the coming days, searching for things in the software center and not finding what they want. This is because some applications still don’t ship AppData files, which have become compulsory for this release. So far, over 53% of applications shipped in Fedora ship the required software center metadata, up from the original 12% in Fedora 21. If you don’t like this, you can either use dnf to install the package on the command line, or set gsettings set org.gnome.software require-appdata false. If you want to see your application in the software center in the future, please file a bug either upstream or downstream (I’ve already filed a lot of upstream bugs) or even better write the metadata and get it installed either upstream tarball or downstream in the Fedora package. Most upstream and downstream maintainers have shipped the extra software center information, but some others might need a little reminder about it from users.
Red Hat is letting another one of their developers focus on improvements to Nouveau, the open-source NVIDIA Linux graphics driver.

Thank you everyone for a great job, sleepless nights validating TCs,
RCs, fixing bugs, composing stuf and everything else needed for
smooth releases. Amazing last three years wrangling releases for me!
