The Fedora Project has announced the general availability of Fedora 24, the first 2016 release of the fully-open Fedora operating system. Fedora 24 comprises a set of base packages that form the foundation of three distinct editions: Fedora 24 Cloud, Fedora 24 Server, and Fedora 24 Workstation.

At a foundational level, Fedora 24 now includes glibc 2.23 and improvements to POSIX compliance and GNU Compiler Collection (GCC) 6. All base packages have been rebuilt with GCC 6. Fedora 24 also included OpenShift Origin, a Kubernetes distribution for application development and deployment.

The Fedora Project is a Red Hat sponsored and community-driven open source collaboration.
