Fedora 21 reached Alpha status last month and will reach beta status at the end of October. There are plenty of new features planned for the final release.

You can test Fedora 21 now using Rackspace’s Cloud Servers. I’ve assembled a small Ansible playbook that will automate the upgrade process from Fedora 20 to 21 and it takes around 7-9 minutes to complete.

The Ansible playbook is on GitHub along with instructions: ansible-rax-fedora21
