Fedora 23 for POWER released

It's (approximately) Halloween, so you know what that means — new
Fedora! The Fedora 23 release is here, and it's better than ever
before. We're pleased to bring you the latest incarnations of the two
main Fedora editions on POWER — Fedora Cloud, and Fedora Server,
each built with love by the Fedora community to custom-fit your
needs in different areas.

If that's all you need to hear, download from
or if you already use Fedora, follow the simple upgrade steps at

Otherwise, read on for details.

Fedora Server

Fedora Server makes service management simple with RoleKit, a
programmatic interface for quick deployment, and Cockpit, a remote web
GUI. Now in Fedora Server 23, you can manage Kubernetes clusters from
the Cockpit Admin Console, or launch a FreeIPA domain controller from a
kickstart file. Get Fedora Server this morning and have an identity
management solution in place by lunchtime.

Fedora Cloud

Build scale-out computing with Fedora Cloud. The Fedora Cloud Base
image provides a minimal OS platform which can be downloaded for use in

* https://getfedora.org/cloud/

Updated Components

As with every Fedora release, almost every component has a new version,
with improvements across the board.

Fedora 23 also has important under-the-hood security improvements, with
increased hardening for all compiled software and with insecure SSL3
and RC4 protocols disabled. We've also updated all of the software
installed by default in Fedora Cloud Base Image and to use
Python version 3, and the Mono .NET compatible framework is now
at version 4.

Perhaps most importantly, Unicode 8.0 support now enables the crucial
U1F32D character.
