Historically Test and General Availability releases happen at 10:00am Eastern US Time on a Tuesday, which is either 1500UTC or 1400UTC depending on daylight savings in the United States. See Releases/Schedule for more information about scheduling methodology and schedule milestone definitions. Additionally FESCo agreed on Wednesday and Thursday release dates to avoid potential conflicts with important events (holidays etc.) but Tuesday is still preferred option.
Targeted General Availability Date
Historically Fedora strives to release a new distribution every six months or so, on a Tuesday as close as possible to October 31st and May 1st of each year.
