Fedora 39 is finally released. As the 'tradition' goes with Fedora, this release also got delayed by almost 4 weeks due to last-minute bugs. That's okay, I believe. It's better to be late than broken.

Existing Fedora 37 or 38 users can easily upgrade to the newer version. You can refer to this tutorial, if you need help.

💬 Let's see what you get in this edition of FOSS Weekly:

  • A new Garuda Linux release.
  • Audacity 3.4 released with new features.
  • 8 handpicked websites that Linux users should know of.
  • And other Linux news, videos, Puzzles and, of course, memes!
