Development Release: Fedora 33 Beta

  • The Fedora team have announced the availability of Fedora 33 Beta. The new development snapshot includes new features, such as using Btrfs as the default filesystem along with GNOME 3.38 as the Workstation edition’s desktop. Some editions, apart from just Workstation, now enable the EarlyOOM process killer to avoid reduced system performance when RAM is full. “All of the desktop variants of Fedora 33 Beta - including Fedora Workstation, Fedora KDE, and others - will use Btrfs as the default filesystem. This is a big shift: we’ve been using ext filesystems since Fedora Core 1. Btrfs offers some really compelling features for users, including transparent compression and copy-on-write. For Fedora 33, we’re only defaulting to the basic features of Btrfs, but we’ll build out the default feature set to include more goodies in future releases.” Further details can be found in the distribution’s release announcement.
