News. Latest Updates
Previous versions of Korora have shipped with Ubuntu's Jockey for installing drivers like NVIDIA and Catalyst but now we have Pharlap. Jockey has been deprecated upstream in favour of ubuntu-drivers-common, so we thought we'd see if we could make some use of that code base and create a version for Korora/Fedora+RPMFusion.
Today we have released Korora 19.1 which is a 3 month update to the original 19 release. Anyone already running Korora doesn't need this, however if you are planning do any more installs we highly recommend downloading this new release as it includes all updates, a few tweaks and fixes a number of bugs. This release also includes versions of the MATE and Cinnamon desktops which we've created to gauge community interest.
We are pushing an update to korora-settings-gnome which will disable file manager's control of the desktop (meaning no files on the desktop). The reason for this is because it is causing users problems and it's no-longer a supported configuration upstream.
In Korora GNOME we enable file manager to control the desktop. This is no longer a supported configuration upstream and it appears some people have been having problems which appear to be related.
We have decided to make the existing beta release of Korora (Flo) 18 the final version, as the beta period did not reveal any major issues which warranted a new build. The existing beta images have simply been renamed, so if you already have the beta you also have the final release.
