Fedora Linux 38 Beta is ready for testing, with some exciting new features like the GNOME 44 desktop environment and improvements to the rpm package manager.

Fedora 38 is finally available for download…in beta. Yes, the preview version of the Linux-based operating system can be installed now, but remember that it is primarily for testing.

Remember that it is never safe to use a pre-release version of a Linux distribution on your main machine due to bugs and possible data loss.

If you understand the risks and decide to give the OS a try, you’ll be treated to some interesting new features, such as the GNOME 44 desktop environment and improvements to the rpm package manager.

Matthew Miller, Fedora Project Manager explains:

Fedora 38 Workstation Beta includes GNOME 44. This is currently a beta version, with the final release expected by the end of March. GNOME 44 includes several improvements, including a new lock screen, a Background Apps section in the Quick Menu, and improvements to Accessibility settings. In addition, enabling third-party repositories now provides an unfiltered view of applications on the Flathub.

Miller adds:

Packages are now built with stricter compiler flags that protect against buffer overflow. The rpm package manager uses a Sequoia-based OpenPGP parser rather than its own implementation. If you profile the apps, you’ll appreciate the framerate indicators that are now included in the official packages. Of course, there is the usual update of programming languages ​​and libraries: Ruby 3.2, gcc 13, LLVM 16, Golang 1.20, PHP 8.2, and much more.
