Fedora 25 was first released as an alpha version and, after that, as a beta version. Now, Fedora 25 is officially available for the public and you can download it from the tool’s official website.

You should know that Fedora is focusing on offering truly free open source software. At the same time, you will be able to count on a very modern version of the Linux kernel that’s available for this new OS.

Providing many of the latest open source developer and desktop tools, Fedora 25 Workstation delivers a host of new features, including the long-awaited official debut of the Wayland display server. Replacing the legacy X11 system, Wayland has been under development for several years and seeks to provide a smoother, richer experience for graphical environments and better capabilities for modern graphics hardware. To further enhance ease-of-use, Fedora 25 Workstation also features GNOME 3.22, which offers multiple file renaming, a redesigned keyboard settings tool and additional user interface improvements. Workstation users will also be pleased with the inclusion of decoding support for the MP3 media format.

The Fedora 25 Workstation will make life easier for all users that have their computers running Windows or macOS. Thanks to the “Fedora Media Writer”, you will be able to easily download Fedora 25 and write it to a USB stick. This means that you will be able to install Fedora 25 on your computer via the bootable USB stick.

Fedora 25: What’s New?

  • Docker 1.12 for building and running containerized applications
  • Node.js 6.5, the latest version of the popular server-side JavaScript engine
  • Multiple Python versions (2.6, 2.7, 3.3, 3.4 and 3.5) to help test across multiple Python configurations
  • Support for Rust, a programming language that aims to make development faster and more stable.
