These are the Talking Points for the Fedora 20 release. For information on how these talking points were chosen, see Talking Points SOP. They are intended to help Ambassadors quickly present an overview of highlighted features when talking about the release, and to help drive content for the release, etc.

The talking points are based in part on the Change Set for this release.

Themes for the Release

What's the overall "theme" or set of themes for the Fedora 20 release? The Fedora 20 release happens to coincide (roughly) with 10 years of Fedora. After a decade of development, the Fedora 20 release represents the evolution of the project so far and the features that are emphasized in this release say something about the priorities of this community after all that time.

So what are the themes for this Fedora release? If you look over the ChangeSet for F20, it may be a bit opaque to the outside observer what the release actually "means."

ARM as a Primary Architecture

While Fedora has supported a number of hardware architectures over the years, x86/x86_64 has been the default for the majority of Fedora users and for the Linux community in general.

ARM, however, has been making massive strides. It already dominates the mobile market, and is becoming a go-to platform for hobbyists and makers, and is showing enormous promise for the server market as well.

In keeping with Fedora's commitment to innovation, the Fedora community has been pushing to make ARM a primary architecture to satisfy the needs of users and developers targeting the ARM platform.
