Closed a year ago by pbokoc. Opened a year ago by bcotton.

This issue tracks the release note for the following Fedora Change:

https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Changes/AArch64_Xfce_Desktop_image

If you own this change, please add additional information here that we should communicate to Fedora users. Specifically, please consider:

  • New features available because of this change - pick 2 or 3 that are important
  • Considerations for users of previous releases of Fedora (upgrade issues, format changes, etc.)
  • Links to any upstream Release Notes
  • If this helps Fedora be a superior environment for our target audiences, please explain how so that we can emphasize this.

Your notes to us do not need to be formally written. We will edit them and add details as needed. This is a way for you to ensure that we know what is critical about your change.

If you want to write this release note, then:

  • Assign this issue to yourself
  • Check the wiki page linked above, find out what the change is about
  • Determine whether the change actually made it into the release or not[0]
  • Write a draft release note using that information against the correct branch here, in Pagure. (or see below)
  • Get in touch with the contact person/people listed on the wiki page, either through IRC or e-mail, and ask them to check your draft for technical accuracy
  • Submit your Release Note as a PR to this repository.

Once you're done with the above, make sure to either commit the relnote to an appropriate section of the Release Notes book, or, if you're not familiar with Git, AsciiDoc, or whatever else, just add it to this issue as a comment and let pbokoc[1] know that you're done with this one and you'd like the note included. Be sure to do this at least one day before the final release (October 29 according to the current schedule). Also make sure to do this even for relnotes that haven't been checked by the change owner.

[0] You can do that by asking the change owner listed on the wiki page; alternatively you can infer it by checking the tracker bug (linked in Wiki) in Bugzilla and looking at its status; see bug comments for details. Ask someone on the mailing list or on IRC if you're not sure.
[1] In #fedora-docs on FreeNode (UTC+1 timezone, online mostly during the day on weekdays), or pbokoc @redhat.com if you can't get a hold of me on IRC.

Hi @pwhalen, could you please review my release note announcing the new Xfce ARM image? It's formatted with AsciiDoc:

.Xfce installation image for 64-bit ARM

An installation image with the Xfce desktop environment is now available for the 64-bit ARM (AArch64) architecture. The image is useful for systems that do not support hardware graphics acceleration or for other low-performance systems.

The image currently supports the following 64-bit ARM devices:

* Pine64
* Raspberry Pi 3
* 96boards HiKey
* 96boards Dragonboard 410c

Additionally, Fedora continues to provide the following installation images for 64-bit ARM:

* Workstation
* Minimal
* Server

For more information, see link:https://arm.fedoraproject.org/[].

Also, I have a couple of questions:

@pbokoc, quick question: Would this release note fit better under desktop/Desktop.adoc or sysadmin/Distribution.adoc?

Oops, missed the question :) It's fine in Distribution. Fixed in #405.
