[edit] Fedora Releases

[edit] Time Based Release Schedule

To understand the reasoning behind time based release cycles and Fedora's release life cycle see Fedora Release Life Cycle.

[edit] Current Supported Releases

[edit] Development

The next stable release of Fedora currently will be Fedora 21 (TBA).

Fedora's approach involves two development releases, Rawhide and Branched. For more details, see the Fedora Release Life Cycle and those two pages.

[edit] Rawhide

  • Continuous rolling development branch. No releases are ever made directly from Rawhide, and it never freezes. No guarantee of stability. Intended for initial testing of the very latest code under active development.
  • On mirrors: development/rawhide
  • Repository: rawhide (unstable)

[edit] Branched

  • Development branch for pre-release stabilization. All Fedora releases are Branched from Rawhide (the Branch point) before going through the Alpha, Beta and GA (Final) milestones. For a short time between GA and the next Branch point, there is no Branched release. Continuous daily updates, but with controls to promote stabilization.
  • On mirrors: development/21 (or mirror list)
  • Repositories: fedora (stable), updates-testing (test updates)
