Hi again folks! Two bits of Fedora 26 news today. First off, Fedora 26 Alpha has been released! It got delayed by a couple of weeks due to rather a grab-bag of issues – mainly problems with FreeIPA and several kernel bugs – but the delays did at least mean we wound up with a […]

Oooh, look! A shiny thing!

Hmm. Today I was supposed to be finalizing the test cases for Thursday’s switchable graphics Test Day.

Hi folks! Time to announce another Fedora 25 Test Day: Wayland Test Day!
