Fedora 21 GNOME Test Day today!

Hey folks! Apologies for the late notice, but this crept up on me while I fiddled with mail server configurations…today (that is, 2014-08-28) is GNOME Test Day! We’ll be testing GNOME 3.14 pre-release on Fedora 21 pre-Alpha, so I expect everything will work absolutely perfectly and no-one will find any bugs at all 😉

But seriously! Come on down and test, there are lots of fun new features in GNOME 3.14 to try and both GNOME and Fedora teams could definitely use some exercise on the new bits that’ll be included. We have brand-spanking-new nightly live images for i686 and x86_64, and even an ARM image if you’re that one person with hardware capable of running GNOME Shell on ARM. Wayland is actually in more-or-less usable shape for Intel video adapters now, so if you have an Intel-based system you can even give that a try!

The wiki page has full instructions, and we’re using the handy test day results reporting system so you don’t have to hand-edit results into wiki pages, that’s so 2012. Friendly folks – both QA folks and GNOME developers – will be standing by all day European and North American time in #fedora-test-day on Freenode IRC to help you out with testing and discuss any bugs you come across. If you don’t know how to use IRC, you can read these instructions, or just use WebIRC. Please come by and help out if you have a few spare minutes! Thanks.
