The Red Hat-sponsored Fedora Linux 25 continues to provide a cutting-edge Linux desktop experience. It is one of the most loved open source operating system around, whose releases pave a new path for the next generation of other Linux distributions.
These days, the Fedora Project is working on Fedora 25, the next major version of the popular GNU/Linux computer operating systems.
Fedora 25 Release Date:
Earlier, the Fedora Project had decided November 8 as the launch date for the Fedora 25 Final Release. However, due to some major changes coming to this operating system, the developers had to delay the date.
Looking at the Fedora 25 Release Schedule page, it looks like that the Fedora 25 Final Release will arrive on November 15.
The Alpha Release is to be expected to arrive on August 30, followed by the Beta Release on October 11. Just before the Final Release, Fedora 25 is expected to enter the Final Freeze on November 1 2016.
Fedora 25 New Features:
One of the major changes coming to the Fedora 25 is the replacement of the old X.Org Server or X-11 by Wayland. It is a modern technology that’s developed as the next-generation display server. Due to multiple security-related concerns in X-11, Wayland is being welcomed by the open source community.
Another important change in Fedora 25 is the implementation of the Storage project as a replacement of UDisks2 for making changes to storage disks.
This upcoming Linux distro release comes with support for installing debug info packages in parallel. This will make the lives of system admins easier as they’ll be able to see which application is causing which problem.
Fedora 25 will come with updated Open JDK and Network Security Services (NSS). The release will also come up with Perl 5.24 and Ruby on Rails 5.0.
Other important additions will come in the form of GHC 7.0 and supported for Unicode 9.0. The new Fedora Media Write will also come along to make it easy to write Fedora images to USB. In this release, KillUserProcess=yes will be enabled by default with system.
The other changes are removal of Perl from Build Root, the addition of updated Node.js 6.x, the introduction of packages for Rust compiler, updated Erlang 19, and Golang 1.7.
