Fedora 20 Officially Released for IBM System z 64-Bit

Heisenbug comes on the IBM System z 64-bit platform

Dan Horák has announced on January 8 that the Fedora 20 (Heisenbug) Linux operating system is now available for download for the IBM System z (s390x) 64-bit systems.

Dubbed Heisenbug, the Fedora 20 operating system introduces several interesting features, improvements, and updated packages, such as the GNOME 3.10 desktop environment, KDE 4.11 Software Compilation, improved NetworkManager, systemd, and much more.

“The Fedora 20 GA release for the IBM System z is here. This time again a few weeks later than the primary release mainly because of me being on vacation (again :-)) during the December holidays. The difference to primary Fedora is this time a bit larger than it was in Fedora 19 for various reasons.”

“For example some packages now exclude non-x86 architectures even when they built just fine for earlier Fedora releases. We would therefore welcome feedback about packages that work just fine on secondary arches so that upstream projects would be more willing to include our secondary architectures as supported,” Dan Horák said in the official release announcement.
