Fedora Linux 34 branched from Rawhide on Tuesday. While there’s still a lot of work before the Fedora Linux 34 release in April, this marks the beginning of the Fedora Linux 35 development cycle. Work you do in Rawhide now will be in the Fedora Linux 35 release in October.

With that in mind, here are some important milestones:

  • Wed 2021-06-23: Proposal submission deadline (Changes requiring infrastructure changes)
  • Tue 2021-06-29: Proposal submission deadline (Changes requiring mass rebuild & System-Wide Changes)
  • Tue 2021-07-20: Proposal submission deadline (Self Contained Changes)
  • Tue 2021-08-10:
    • Change Checkpoint: Completion deadline (testable)
    • Branch Fedora 35 from Rawhide
  • Tue 2021-08-24:
    • Change Checkpoint: 100% Code Complete Deadline
    • Beta Freeze begins
  • Tue 2021-09-14: Beta release (early target date)
  • Tue 2021-09-21: Beta release (target date #1)
  • Tue 2021-10-05: Final Freeze begins
  • Tue 2021-10-19: Final release (early target date)
  • Tue 2021-10-26: Final release (target date #1)

Of course, the schedule is subject to change. The schedules published to fedorapeople.org are always the most up-to-date.

As always, if your team needs additions, removals, or changes, you can file a ticket in the Pagure repo.

You may have also noticed that the schedule looks visually different. The schedule-convert tool now has support for external CSS. I have updated the recent and future schedules to make it a little easier on the eyes.
