Looks like we won’t be seeing Fedora 39 until November 7

Take your time. I'll wait.

I normally like to get surprised by good news, but I had been keep track of the latest Fedora news since I started the site. I’m now pretty excited to write about Linux here. Unfortunately, since starting Desk Chair Analysts, it’s been nothing but sad news.

To add on to it, it was announced yesterday that the release of Fedora 39 will be delayed to November 7. While they were scheduling an “early final” release on October 18, it was pushed back due to some specific Raspberry Pi bugs. There was even talk about shipping Fedora 39 with the known issues documented, but new issues cropped up, so they delayed it instead.

One bug, 2246385, states that some Fedora editions or spins have “RC” in their filename while others don’t. This would cause issues with users or programs checking filenames to checksums and could cause issues.

Another bug, 2246410, occurs when a failed media check error disappears almost immediately with bare metal systems instead of staying on the screen. The issue has been reproduced and is currently being worked on.

Outside of those, anecdotally, Fedora 39 has been working just fine.

So your mileage may vary.
