Fedora Project announced the release of the new beta version of Fedora 25. The beta version comes with the default Gnome 3.22 interface, supports the Rust programming language, and has a media writer that helps users download installation ISO and transfer to USB drives.
The new beta version of Fedora 25 comes with Wayland as the default display server but also has X as a backup option. It "wears" the Linux kernel 4.8.1.
"Wayland is a replacement for the old X11 display system. Wayland has been under development for many years. Although, like most software it still has some bugs, we believe it is ready to serve many users by default. Users can still opt for the old X11 system if necessary to avoid any problems. ”
Beta brings improved Flatpak support to the software tool :. the software tool is capable of installing, updating, and removing Flatpak software if the Fedora system is configured to access a repo that owns it.
