Ben Williams, a Fedora Ambassador and founder of the Fedora Unity Project, reports on the availability for download of new, updated Live ISO images of the Fedora 24 GNU/Linux operating system.
Dubbed F24-20160808, the newly released Live ISOs arrived on the official FTP channels on the day of August 9, 2016, and they are available for the most important Fedora 24 Spins, including Fedora 24 Workstation (with the GNOME desktop), Fedora 24 KDE, Fedora 24 Xfce, Fedora 24 LXDE, Fedora 24 Cinnamon, and Fedora 24 MATE.
As usual, there’s also a DVD image that contains only source packages. These new respin ISO images contain all the latest software updates and security patches that have been pushed to the official repositories of the Fedora 24 operating system since the release of the F24-20160720 ISO respins last month.
“As always these respins can be found at http://tinyurl.com/Live-respins2,” says Ben Williams in the blog announcement. “Using the updated ISOs will save about 500MB of updates after install (Gold MATE install updates as of 20160808 is 577MB). I would like to thank the community and the seeders for their dedication to this project.”
