"The latest version of Fedora's desktop-focused edition provides new tools and features for general users as well as developers. GNOME 3.24 is offered with Fedora 26 Workstation, which includes a host of updated functionality including Night Light, an application that subtly changes screen color based on time of day to reduce the effect on sleep patterns, and LibreOffice 5.3, the latest update to the popular open-source office productivity suite. For developers, GNOME 3.24 provides matured versions of Builder and Flatpak to make application development for a variety of systems, including Rust and Meson, easier across the board," says the Fedora Project.

The Fedora Project shares the following significant updates in version 26 of the operating system.
  • Updated compilers and languages, including GNU Compiler Collection (GCC) 7, Go 1.8, Python 3.6 and Ruby 2.4
  • DNF 2.0, the latest version of Fedora’s next-generation package management system with improved backward compatibility with Yum
  • A new storage configuration screen for the Anaconda installation program, enabling “bottom-up” configuration from devices and partitions
  • Updates to Fedora Media Writer that enable users to create bootable SD cards with Fedora for ARM-based devices, like Raspberry Pi
