Notice: Fedora 24 has reached end of life and is no longer supported.


As the title suggests, I will no longer be supporting Fedora 24 for any of my programs, as it has officially reached its End Of Life date.

What does this mean for users or this versions of Fedora?

Fedora 24 users will no longer receive security updates. This means this older fedora version will rapidly become insecure and unsafe for general internet-connected use. It will still work, but most applications will stop supporting it in the near future, or already have. I advise users to upgrade to a supported version of Fedora, like 25 or 26. Alternatively they could switch to a different Linux distro like Linux Mint or Ubuntu if they wish.

But I need to run on Fedora 24!

Well, the current versions of my programs still have downloads for Fedora 24 (at the time of writing), but no future versions will. You can continue to run the older versions though, and they will remain up for download on my website at If you really need to, you could try running a newer version of one of my programs on Fedora 24, even though I don’t support it. I can’t guarantee this will work, but it might be a good solution in the interim if you really must do it.

Note that I also no longer support Ubuntu 12.04, Ubuntu 16.10, and OS X versions older than 10.9.

About Hamish McIntyre-Bhatty

I’m currently studying for a Computing and IT degree with the Open University, and am a software developer as well. I enjoy coding in Python, C++ (still learning), and Java.

Having written 4 open-source programs (hosted on, set up my own website, and started volunteering at Wimborne Model Town to work on their river control system, I still find the time to enjoy cycling, acting, photography, and playing bass guitar. I go climbing every now and then as well.

As you may have guessed, I also enjoy blogging :)
