Today is November 22 and according to the calendar and the development schedule: Fedora 25 is now available. The latest stable version of Fedora is now available to all its users but the most important thing is not the release itself but what the new version brings.
Fedora 25 is the first Gnu / Linux distribution to will bring Wayland as the default graphical server. A novelty and great support not only for the Wayland server but also for the rest of the distributions that want to make use of it.
Wayland will be the default graphical server for Fedora 25 but it will not be completely as there are still many applications and drivers that are not compatible with it. That is why X11 or Xorg libraries are used to complement the gaps that exist between Wayland and the drivers.
The Wayland graphical server will coexist with X11 during this new Fedora 25
The guys at Fedora are aware of how new Wayland represents and that is why it also gives the option of being able to choose the old graphic server instead of having Wayland, something that will be ideal for those who are very gamers, or need to make a lot of use of the card graphics, high-end graphics such as Nvidia or ATI cards.
The new graphical server Wayland is the great novelty of Fedora 25 but it is not the only new thing about the distribution or what its users will have. In addition, Fedora 25 incorporates the latest news in Flatpack packages as well as more packages with this format. The latest versions of the latest software are also incorporated, including highlights Plasma 5.8 LTS or MATE 1.16, Firefox 50 or kernel 4.8 with the solution to Dirty Cow.
In any case the best is test this distribution or if we are Fedora users, update our version to Fedora 25 What do you think?
