Linux News Today: After Fedora 21 and Chapeau 21, Now Korora 21 Linux Reaches End of Life
We reported the other day that the Chapeau 21 Linux distribution reached end of life, after our previous announcement about the end of life for the Fedora 21 operating system, published on December 1, 2015.
As many of you know, Korora is yet another remix of the popular and acclaimed Fedora Linux distribution, which means that it has to follow its release schedule, just as the Chapeau Linux operating system does, and probably several other Fedora-based distros as well.
In other words, if Fedora 21 reached end of life, so will the other Fedora-based operating systems, including Chapeau and Korora. Therefore, starting December 1, 2015, the Korora 21 distribution officially reached end of life, and it will no longer receive software updates and security patches.
The Korora developers are urging all users of the Korora 21 (Darla) operating system to upgrade to either the latest stable version, Korora 22, or the current development release of the distribution, Korora 23 Beta, which is based on the stable Fedora 23 release.
“We advise our users to upgrade to Korora 22 or Korora 23 Beta, which is also available and ready for every day use, as soon as possible. Systems that still have K21 installed, won’t receive any security updates anymore from now on and are considered to be vulnerable,” reads the announcement.
Upgrading to a new Korora release
If you’re still using the Korora 21 operating system on your personal computer, you need to prepare for an upgrade to Korora 22 (recommended) or Korora 23 Beta. But before anything else, please keep in mind to make a backup of all your important documents and files.
Details on how to upgrade to a new Korora release have been published by the distribution’s developers at https://kororaproject.org/support/documentation/upgrading-korora. Alternatively, you can do a clean install of Korora 22 or Korora 23 Beta by downloading the Live ISO images from our website.
