Fedora 26 was made available a few days ago.

Here are some of the highlights and things to keep in mind:

  • Development tools have been updated to reflect latest versions, aka GCC 7, Golang 1.8, and Python 3.6
  • A new partitioning tool has been added to Anaconda (the installer)
  • DNF, the package manager, comes updated with a major version bringing quite a few changes
  • The system-wide crypto policy is being extended to two additional services, OpenSSH and Java
  • OpenSSL comes in its new version 1.1.0
  • The aarch64 kernel now comes with a 48-bit virtual address space, which should signify a performance improvement for server instances. Servers running Fedora 26 will find more RAM available than in previous Fedora versions.
