Fedora: Changes to Media Writer and New Releases of Fedora 33 ISOs

  • Refreshed UI For Fedora Media Writer

    For those who don’t know, Fedora Media Writer is a tool to create bootable live USB drive with your favorite flavor of Fedora. It is written in C++ with UI written in QML and it is supported on Linux, Windows and Mac OS X. It was developed by Martin Bříza, my former collegue from Red Hat, who did an amazing job in the past. Fedora Media Writer (FMW) primarily targets Fedora Workstation and therefore the UI looks like a GNOME app using Adwaita theme. Unfortunately the Adwaita theme changed over time and originally FMW was written using QtQuickControls 1 (deprecated these days) so it needed an UI overhaul.

  • F33-20201113 updated isos released.

    The Fedora Respins SIG is pleased to announce the latest release of Updated F33-20201113-Live ISOs, carrying the 5.8.18-200 kernel.

    Some say Friday the 13th is unlucky, but we can say otherwise with this release.

    This set of updated isos will save considerable amounts of updates after install. ((for new installs.)(New installs of Workstation have about 800MB+ of updates)).

Fedora's Qt-Based Media Writer Seeing Improvements

  • Fedora's Qt-Based Media Writer Seeing Improvements

    Fedora Media Writer is the project's cross-platform utility for deploying Fedora install images to USB drives in an easy-to-user manner and for selecting from the various Fedora spins. One of Red Hat's engineers has recently been working on some modernization improvements to this Fedora image writer.

    While Fedora Workstation continues to be GNOME/GTK-focused, with macOS and Windows being supported alongside Linux for the Fedora Media Writer, it's understandably written using a Qt5 interface for greater cross-platform compatibility. Jan Grulich of Red Hat has been working to modernize this C++ program since it has been relying on the deprecated Qt Quick Controls 1.

    Grulich has been working to move off the Qt Quick Controls 1 code to using Qt Quick Controls 2.
