Fedora 29 Linux Enters Beta with GNOME 3.30 Desktop, Modularity for All Editions

Fedora 29 has been in development for the past several months, since the May 1, 2018, release of Fedora 28, and it’s being built based on the recently released GNOME 3.30 desktop environment for the main Workstation edition, as well as the Linux 4.18 kernel series. And now, the beta release of Fedora 29 is now available for public testing. As expected, users willing to try out the Fedora 29 beta release will get a first taste of the GNOME 3.30 desktop environment, but Fedora 29 also includes numerous other new open source technologies like GNU C Library (Glibc) 2.28, Python 3.7, Perl 5.28. MySQL 8, and Golang 1.11.
