Korora 24 (Sheldon) Release

The Korora Project has released version 24 (codename “Sheldon”) which is now available for download.

As usual, you can find a list of already known problems at the common F24 bugs page.

Changes in Korora 24

Images are 64 bit only, 32 bit users can still upgrade

Over the last few versions the demand for 32 bit ISOs has markedly decreased to the point where we feel it’s no-longer necessary to provide install images for the platform. Starting with Korora 24, images will be 64 bit (x86_64) only, however those who have 32 bit systems already are still able to upgrade to Korora 24. If you have been running 32 bit Korora on 64 bit hardware we strongly encourage you to install the 64 bit version instead.

No KDE Plasma release yet

We would dearly love to have a KDE iso ready to go, but we ran into a number of issues and decided to not let this hold up the release of Korora 24.. It is possible to upgrade a Korora 23 install of KDE to Korora 24 however there are some settings such as themes may need to be manually set up again.

Pharlap has been deprecated

As previously announced, driver manager Pharlap will not be included in Korora 24. If you have any questions about drivers you can contact us via Engage or on IRC.
