Screenshot preview of GNOME 3.18 on Fedora 23

Fedora 23 beta 1 is the final pre-release version of what will become Fedora 23, which is scheduled for release on October 27 (2015).

Together with the default Fedora edition, which uses the GNOME 3 desktop, and the Spins, Fedora editions that use other desktop environments, the beta 1 installation images were released three days ago.

I’ve already posted a few screenshots from a test installation of the Cinnamon Spin. See Fedora 23 Cinnamon preview. In this post, you’ll find screenshots taken from a test installation of the main edition.

GNOME 3.18, the latest stable edition, was released a day before Fedora 23 beta 1, and since it features the latest development version of what will become GNOME 3.18 on Fedora 23, these are some of the first screenshots of GNOME 3.18 posted on the Web.

Figure 1 show the login screen. Logging in via Wayland is an option, but not one that I tried.

In case you needed evidence that Fedora 23 beta 1 does indeed feature what will become GNOME 3.18 on Fedora 23, here it is.

GNOME Boxes is an OS virtualization component of GNOME 3, and it features prominently on Fedora 23 beta 1.

This shows a section of the main interface of GNOME Software, the graphical package manager of Fedora 23. Yum Extender, the graphical package manager on Fedora 23 Cinnamon seems to offer a better interface for managing applications than GNOME Software.

There are just two applications within the System > Security application category, and one of them is not even a security application.
