Fedora 28 is unleashed with boosted performance and a smart new desktop

Fedora 28 has been released, with three new variants of the Linux distribution – Workstation, Server and Atomic Host – having emerged.

Fedora is the free version supported by the Red Hat Enterprise Linux community, and as you expect, Fedora 28 brings a series of bug fixes in general, not to mention a boost on the performance front.

Fedora 28 Workstation, the distribution layout designed for the desktop, is enriched with a series of new tools for the average user and developers alike, with Gnome 3.28 now incorporated, providing better organizational skills in terms of dialing Favorite files, folders or contacts.

And Usage is a new application that is included to diagnose and solve performance problems better. Gnome Photos is now also on board as the default photo management application, for a more optimized image organization workflow.

Thunderbolt 3 connectors are now compatible and the new energy-saving features should provide longer battery life for your laptop. There is also more powerful emoji compatibility to boot.

Correct servers

Regarding the new main features with Fedora 28 Server, the main movement is a new modular repository, designed to deliver software and updates with alternative versions other than those provided with the default version of the operating system .

Basically this means that users can select and choose what they want, and update specific elements at the speed they require. The Fedora 28 server has also gained support for 64-bit ARM as the main architecture, expanding options on the hardware front.

Finally, when it comes to Fedora 28 Atomic Host, the great introduction is the incorporation of Kubernetes 1.9, delivering new features to manage workloads native to the container.

You can get all these flavors of Fedora 28 from the official website here.
