See what’s coming in Fedora 22 Workstation

Even though Fedora 21 is just over a month old, the Fedora Workstation developers are already hard at work planning the next release, Fedora 22. In a detailed post on his blog, Christian Schaller details some of the areas that the developers are focusing on for Fedora 22.

Some of the areas that are being focused on in this release include: Improved battery performance, more development on Wayland, the beginnings of development of application bundles, better 3rd party application support, more Terminal improvements, and improvements to developer tools. Be sure to check out Christian’s blog post for all the detailsworkstation-large

    Sounds awesome, since better battery performance and good wayland support are what I’m looking forward to.

    I keep hoping that better DPI scaling, and Inverse cursors make an appearence down the road. The new desktop allows a resolution setting (F3) at the start screen, but still starts installation at the maximum DPI setting, with a tiny white cursor on a white background. The biggest challenge (At least for me) is getting past the setup portion.
    Can’t helpfeeling there are others in the same boat out there.

    I hope for a more easy upgrader, fedora seriously needs an easy upgrade option.


      +10! I tried to upgrade a few pc’s running 20, all were unsuccessful, Had to fresh install all.

    My wish is more testing and polish of KDE.

    “I hope for a more easy upgrader, fedora seriously needs an easy upgrade option.”

    On Linux (or Windows), never seen an upgrade which “really works”.
    Could rather focus instead on a better reinstall, like :

    a) Install (from the current Linux Fedora, the “latest and greatest” Fedora Linux on an other partition made available, say approx 50GB, fairly easy now on many systems, with 300GB + storage available.
    in order to install the latest Fedora as current configuration. (Packages, drivers, possibly repositories). Including, of course updating GRUB.

    b) Allow creation of a “quikstart” file, to be save on external storage (ex: flash drive), in order to rebuild the latest Fedora as current configuration.

    c) Suggest the default partitioning to have “/home” and “/boot” mounted on a separately created partition. XFS so far seems to be the most reliable file system, not the fastest but the easiest to fix, booting from a flash drive live Fedora… or other (Using gparted : simple).

    a should make testing of the latest Fedora a lot simpler.
    Both a & b, should be rather simple, and make upgrading easier.
