Korora, a Fedora Remix distribution with tweaks and extras to make the system “just work” out of the box, which aims to provide a complete and easy-to-use system for general computing, is now at version 20.

Korora 20 has been dubbed “Peach” and is based on Fedora 20 “Heisenbug.” The developers followed closely the Fedora 20 cycle, so it's only natural that Korora is a stable version.

Korora 20 features five versions, for GNOME, MATE, KDE, Cinnamon, and Xfce. It comes with a few default applications such as Adobe Flash, Google Chrome, Google Earth, RPMFusion, and VirtualBox.

“This release brings with it a significant amount of work by the team and community to bring not two but ‘five desktops’ that have been shaped for a genuine Korora experience. The additions of Cinnamon, MATE and Xfce represent the growth of our community and their contributions. Thank you to all who have contributed to make this possible,” said the developers in the official announcement.

Highlights of Korora 20:

• GNOME 3.10 has been implemented and represents another iteration to the new desktop which is also targeting native Wayland support;
• KDE Plasma Workspaces has been updated to version 4.11 and comes with a host of bug fixes, speed ups, and improvements to the native applications;
• The Application Installer brings a new interface for installing packages in GNOME;
• NetworkManager now configures bond master and bridge interfaces with commonly used options;
• According to the developers, LVM has introduced thin provisioning technology, which provides greatly improved snapshot functionality in addition to thin provisioning capability;
• Plasma-nm has replaced the current network applet in KDE;
• SSD Cache has been updated.
