Fedora 26 Alpha Arrives with DNF 2.0, GNOME 3.24, GCC 7, and Linux Kernel 4.11

The latest GNOME 3.24 desktop environment is available for testing in the Fedora 26 Alpha Workstation edition, and, under the hood, all the official Fedora Spins ship with the third Release Candidate of the Linux 4.11 kernel, the DNF 2.0 package management system, as well as the GCC 7 compiler. Red Hat’s System Security Services Daemon (SSSD) fast cache for local users is implemented in this Alpha for better performance, pkgconf is available as well as default system pkg-config implementation, systemd-coredump is also enabled by default, and the xorg-x11-drv-synaptics driver has been removed.
