This is a draft only for discussion. This is not a final set of talking points, nor are all of the features listed here complete at the time of this draft. Please do a reality check before using these talking points as anything other than a discussion draft!

These are the Talking Points for the Fedora 24 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.

Overall Release Story

Fedora-Wide Changes and Improvements

Fedora Cloud

See this ticket:

Tracking features that will make it into the Alpha. From there we'll create the basic points.

The overall "story" for Fedora Cloud this cycle is continuing work on container technologies for cloud environments. Most of the wood behind the arrow this cycle is going to be for Fedora Atomic Host and running OpenShift Origin on top of Fedora.

Fedora Server

Fedora Workstation

  • Wayland - the new display technology to replace aging X is ready for daily use. Although Wayland hasn't reach 100% feature parity with X, developers have covered most use cases and made it a reliable option. Wayland brings better HiDPI support for multiple monitors, tear-free video playback, significantly improved security due to app isolation on the display server level, and lots of potential for the future.
  • Font Improvements - the default font - Cantarell - has received some major improvements: the language coverage has been brought up almost to Adobe Latin 4 and Adobe Cyrillic 2, e.g. Vietnamese is fully supported now. Hinting has been tweaked.
  • Shortcuts Windows - 18 GNOME apps have received a window with an overview of keyboard shortcuts and multitouch gestures available for the application. Just hit Control-F1 or Control-? to open the window.
