Many innovations from within the Fedora Project make their way into new releases of Red Hat Enterprise Linux. Fedora 32 sees a number of changes: With Python 2 past end-of-life, most Python 2 packages have been removed, although a legacy python27 package is provided for developers and users who still require it. You will also find that:

  • programming language and system library packages have been updated
  • /boot can be placed on a Btrfs subvolume
  • the nftables filtering subsystem is the default firewall backend for firewalld
  • users are defined in sysusers.d format
  • all scriptlet calls for core packages have been removed to speed up the install process of container images
