Fedora 21 Released, Work on 22 Already Begun

Filed under
Red Hat

The top story today is the release of Fedora 21. Jamie Watson said it was worth the year-long development wait and it was so anticipated that Fedora infrastructure suffered a major service disruption. Servers were reported down today at 4:41 PM but all systems were a GO by 7:21 this evening. Adam Williamson also posted about the beginnings of work on version 22, so no rest for the weary.

Fedora 21 Release Review: An Impressive Developer Workstation

Filed under
Red Hat
Reviews

Fedora is among the most respected Linux-based distributions. Known as a bleeding edge operating system it offers the latest technologies at the earliest stages. It’s also known for working with upstream projects instead of patching things downstream.

Fedora displays both qualities due to the fact that Fedora/Red Hat developers are among the leading contributors to many major open source projects, including the Linux kernel; they work for everyone and not just for their own distribution.

Fedora 21 has just been released and I have been playing with the beta for a while. There are now three editions of Fedora: server, workstation and cloud. Since I am using it for my desktop I downloaded and installed the Workstation.

Red Hat product president Paul Cormier disses the Docker myth

Filed under
Red Hat

So just what is the relationship between red-hot container company Docker and open source stalwart Red Hat? Are the two companies on the same side, or not? Do Docker containers complement or compete with Red Hat's Linux offerings?

To get some answers, I talked with Paul Cormier, Red Hat's president of products and technologies, and he had some pretty strong opinions on the subject. But it all boils down to Red Hat's position that container technology (and Docker) simply isn't the be-all and end-all that many people seem to want it to be—at least not in the enterprise.

Fedora 21's Performance Is Close To Ubuntu 14.10

Filed under
Graphics/Benchmarks
Red Hat

Fedora 21 is due out in a few days and as such I've been busy extensively testing and benchmarking this first Fedora Linux update in a year. To not much surprise given the close package versions to Ubuntu 14.10, Fedora 21 isn't performing very differently from the Ubuntu Utopic Unicorn.

Most of the Linux distribution performance comparisons don't turn up much assuming the Linux kernel, compiler, and Mesa components are close to the same version. From there it mostly comes down to the defaults for the CPU scaling driver/governor, I/O scheduler, etc. With Fedora 21 compared to Ubuntu 14.10 and Ubuntu 14.04.1 LTS, the results are very close.

Fedora Might Shift To A Tick-Tock Release Cadence

Filed under
Red Hat

Inspired by Intel's tick-tock model of processor development cycles in flipping between architecture and manufacturing advancements, Fedora Linux developers are currently considering a similar model in flipping between feature releases.

Fedora Project Leader Matthew Miller brought up for public discussion the idea of Fedora moving to a tick-tock release cadence. Under the proposal, it would allow alternating between a focus on release features and on release engineering / QA / tooling. The "tick" releases of Fedora would drive features and reduce release engineering changes while the "tock" would focus more on the engineering / tooling changes.
