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.

Korora 26 codename has been given and development started.

Exciting times are ahead for our upcoming release here at the Korora Project.

However recently the developer of Yumex-dnf announced that there would be no future development. Around the same time a new package manager designed specifically for dnf emerged, dnfdragora.
