Fedora fans all over the world have just excited for the release of the new version, Fedora 27. As usual, the the version brings several fixes and improvements as well as adds some new features.
Nevertheless, though, as for KDE spin, it’s likely there’s nothing really fresh in this new version of Fedora. From above screencast I found on youtube, we can see that the version of Plasma is 5.10.5, which is not the latest one: 5.11 that has new couple of brand new stuffs like the new Systemsettings UI design and Wayland support. But on the other hand, F27 KDE has the newest Qt version shipped, i.e 5.9.1 –nearly the newest one though.
As I wrote this post, I was in upgrading process. By the way, I started switching to Fedora since the version 23 back then. And I have successfully passed 3 times of upgrade processes, not by reinstalling a new ISO image. So, I feel so courageous to just upgrade it by DNF
system-upgrade. Even though I need to download 2,4 GB of new packages!
Steps to upgrade
According to Fedora Magazine guide to upgrading Fedora 26 to 27, these are the DNF commands:
sudo dnf upgrade --refresh
sudo dnf install dnf-plugin-system-upgrade
sudo dnf system-upgrade download --releasever=27
sudo dnf system-upgrade reboot
