A new Fedora Atomic Host update is available via an OSTree commit:

Version: 27.16
Commit(x86_64): 86727cdbc928b7f7dd0e32f62d3b973a8395d61e0ff751cfea7cc0bc5222142f
Commit(aarch64): 49f9b422bc53b30aea3074c75a15e8322ed1d14980ff0b5f9c694089598b4f2f

This is a large update as it is the first update in Fedora 27. Included are new kernel, systemd, ostree, rpm-ostree, and atomic CLI. Future updates should be quite a bit smaller than this.

We are releasing images from multiple architectures but please note that x86_64 architecture is the only one that undergoes automated testing at this time.
