The Fedora Project announcedtoday the immediate availability of the beta release of the upcoming Fedora 30 Linux operating system, which comes with major enhancements and new features.

After being in development for the past three months, Fedora 30 Beta is here to give the Fedora Linux community a glimpse to the new features and changes implemented so far, which will be available in the final release later this spring. It comes with the latest GNOME 3.32 desktop environment, the Linux 5.0 kernel series, and performance improvements to the DNF package manager.

"All dnf repository metadata for Fedora 30 Beta is compressed with the zchunk format in addition to xz or gzip. zchunk is a new compression format designed to allow for highly efficient deltas," explains Ben Cotton. "When Fedora’s metadata is compressed using zchunk, dnf will download only the differences between any earlier copies of the metadata and the current version."

Fedora 30 Beta also introduces two new desktop environment options for those who want to customize their Fedora desktop experience. As such, the Deepin Desktop Environment and Pantheon Desktop are joining the existing KDE Plasma, GNOME, Xfce, LXDE, LXQt, Cinnamon, MATE, and SoaS desktops in the Fedora 30 release.Fedora Linux 30 expected to launch on May 7th, 2019Under the hood, the Fedora 30 Beta release brings numerous updates to core components, including the GNU C Library, the Bash shell, Python, Perl, Golang, and many others. If you want to take Fedora 30 Beta for a test drive, you can download the ISO images for various of the available flavors right now through our free software portal or the official website.

Please keep in mind though that this is a pre-release version, which shouldn’t be installed on production machines, nor used for any production work. If you don’t want to use beta software or you’re not interested in giving feedback to the Fedora Project about Fedora Linux, we recommend waiting for the final Fedora 30 release, which should hit the streets on May 7th, 2019.
