On the DVD


Fedora 36 has been delayed several times, but it should be released by the time you read this. It will be supported until May 17, 2023.

The Fedora distribution has a long-established reputation for innovation, but Fedora 36 is a relatively modest release. As usual, the new release includes new wallpapers and themes, many of them reflecting the recent fad for dark modes. However, many of the new features are due to the Linux 5.17 kernel and the very latest Gnome 42 release, and they are mostly under the hood. Fedora's own contributions to the release are similarly largely concealed, such as enhanced support for NVIDIA drivers and Wayland. Fedora 36 can be considered a maintenance release that catches up with upstream projects and tweaks the distribution's inner workings, continuing and solidifying the modifications that have been eased into the distro over the past few years.
