What’s new in Fedora 30 Workstation

Fedora 30 Workstation is the latest groundbreaking release of our free, leading-edge operating system. You can download it from the official website here right now. There are several new and noteworthy changes in Fedora Workstation. Read more details below.

GNOME 3.32

Fedora 30 Workstation includes the latest release of this simple, beautiful desktop environment for users of all types. There are numerous improvements throughout GNOME 3.32, including:

  • A refreshed visual style with buttons and switches that are easier to identify and use
  • Completely refreshed icons for applications
  • Consistent user icons across the desktop
  • Snappier performance thanks to fixes and enhancements in the core GNOME libraries
  • An Applications panel that controls permissions, to make use of Flatpak apps easier
  • …and much more!

Do you want the full details of everything in GNOME 3.32? Visit the release notes for even more community provided goodness.


You can also try Fedora Silverblue — it’s all the features of Workstation but combined with the rpm-ostree features of Fedora Atomic. Worry-free upgrades (with backouts) are just one of the benefits of this technology. You can also install your favorite Flatpak or RPM packaged apps on top.

Silverblue continues to develop now and in future releases. Learn how you can contribute by visiting the Silverblue team’s website.

  1. Hi,
    Fedora 30 would not count with a spin deepin? I do not see it for download.

    • Turbovix

      Você pode baixar a imagem (Fedora-Workstation-netinst-x86_64-30-1.2.iso) e instalar o Fedora com o desktop Deepin!


    • Javier Arias

      It is not available as a separate Spin. You need to install it from console.

    • Jeff J

      You can start from a Fedora net-install and at the software selection screen of the installer, select the Deepin Desktop environment. Good luck 🙂

    Hi All:

    I get this error message on installing from fc29 to fc30:
    Error running transaction: file /usr/share/licenses/apache-commons-lang3/LICENSE.txt conflicts between apache-commons-lang3-javadoc-3.8.1-3.fc30.noarch and apache-commons-lang3-3.7-3.module_f28+3939+dc18cd75.noarch

    So what does this mean?

    Why is an fc28 module being installed by the fc30-upgrade routine, and it conflicts?

    Where is the problem, that I can address?

    Look forward to your reply

    Cannot upgrade to fc30 from software center:
    Installing package firefox-66.0.3-1.fc30.x86_63 needs 144 MB on the /filesystem

  7. Joao Rodrigues

    Is there any way to make the installer in the Workstation Live ISO show the same options as the installer in the Everything netinstall iso?

  8. DIS

    Curl error (37): Couldn’t read a file:// file for file:///etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-fedora-30-i386 [Couldn’t open file /etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-fedora-30-i386]

    Is there something missing here? The article says “several new and noteworthy changes” but it only lists the GNOME 3.32 upgrade, which (to me) is one…
