With Fedora 38 officially released, Sericea and Sway Spin have also been officially released!
In the last month, I’ve been working on those variants' presence on the Fedora website. Now both variants have their page on the Fedora Website respectively at Sericea and Sway Spin.
If you have any questions, reach the Sway SIG in the following ways:
Sway SIG mailing list. Sway SIG Matrix channel. I hope many of you will find these valuable improvements to Fedora as much as I do.Read More

The Fedora Project released Fedora 38 beta images. The Fedora Sway Spin and the Fedora Sericea ones are in the long list of released images!
This is a critical point in the release of those Fedora artifacts based on Sway since it is the first time it has been possible to test them for the wider public. Although the Fedora Project has been creating Sway artifacts for a couple of months, those were based on Rawhide, which is “a not always stable” version of Fedora, since it tracks far in the future (4-10 months) versions of Fedora.Read More

Back in August, I asked for suggestions for a name for an os-tree-based Fedora version with Sway. Although I’ve not posted anything more on the topic, the work went forward.

A couple of weeks ago, the Fedora Council approved the request to create a “traditional” spin called “Fedora Sway spin” as well as an os-tree spin called “Fedora Sericea”.Read More

The Fedora Sway SIG is working to create an immutable version of the Sway Spin (also work in progress) using OSTree.
Those immutable spins of Fedora are becoming more common following Silverblue and Kinoite’s success.
As it often happens, one of the most challenging things to do in creating something is to come up with clever names. This task is made even more complex by the relatively small amount of people active in this conversation.Read More

For many years now, I’ve been using immutable versions of Fedora. I remember that I started to play with immutable Fedora back in 2015 when Fedora Atomic was new. I liked the idea since the first time I’ve read about it, but in the beginning, I did not spend too much time making it work on my setup because it seemed a little bit too complex. At DevConf.cz 2016, I met Patrick Uiterwijk, who was running his spin of Fedora Atomic.Read More
