For the past few years Korora has released a new version in line with each Fedora version. That means that approximately twice a year we prepare, test and create 5 different ISO versions. This is as well as, among other things, developing new projects, supporting existing releases and planning the future versions. As each team member has different skills some tasks, such as development, can only be done by one person.
If you have heard of the Meltdown vulnerability you may be wondering how to protect your Korora system.

Korora is designed to provide a complete ready to go system and so includes applications to do all the common computer tasks. However having all those applications installed may be confusing to those new to Korora.
It is said that the only constant is change and so it is at Korora. There have been a couple of changes recently. First our Project lead, Chris Smart, is taking an indefinite break from the project. Chris still supports the aims of Korora but for personal reasons and to allow more time for other challenges he is taking a break. He has the full support of the rest of the team to expand his horizons. Ian Firns (aka firnsy) has taken on the leadership of the project in addition to his development role.
