Fedora 26 Linux Alpha Freeze Now in Effect, It Is Expected to Launch on March 21

As reported by us last month, the Fedora 26 Linux release was delayed by a week, and it now looks like today, March 7, 2017, is a very important day in the release schedule of the upcoming operating system as it marks the Alpha Freeze, Software String Freeze, and Bodhi activation point. These milestones should have happened a week ago if the one-week the delay didn’t occur. In addition to the today is the Alpha Freeze, Software String Freeze and Bodhi activation point, today also marks the “completion deadline” change checkpoint, which means that all the changes submitted for Fedora 26 must now be feature complete or close, so that everything must be ready for testing when Fedora 26 Alpha launches on March 21.
