Fedora life cycle

Tags linux

The Fedora life cycle is discussed on the project website.

The Fedora Project maintains any given release X until one month after the release of X+2. In practice, Fedora releases a new version about every 6 months, which means than each version of Fedora gets updates, including security updates, for about 13 months.

Current Releases

Currently maintained releases of Fedora are:

  • Fedora 32, released 2020-04-28
  • Fedora 31, released 2019-10-29

End of Life for old Fedora versions

None of these versions are currently permitted on the college networks. If you have a system running one of these operating systems, please contact LSA Technology Services to arrange an upgrade.
