Fedora’s journey is not simply about updating one operating system with the latest and greatest packages. It’s also about innovation for the many different platforms represented in the Fedora Project: Workstation, Server, Atomic, and the various Spins. Coordinating the efforts across the many working groups is no small task, and serves as a testament to the talent and professionalism found within the Fedora community.
As we move into this Beta phase of the Fedora 25 release cycle, what can users expect?Fedora-Wide Changes
Some of the changes that will be seen across all aspects of Fedora include:Docker updated to version 1.12 Support for weaker certificate authorities (i.e., 1024-bit) has been removed Node.js updated to version 6.x “Secondary architectures” now known as “alternate architectures” Rust : Fedora 25 brings the support for the Rust programming language . Rust is a system programming language which runs blazingly fast, and prevents almost all crashes, segfaults, and data races. pythons : Alongside the “standard” Python versions included in Fedora 25 (3.5 and 2.7), Python programmers can now install Python 3.4, 3.3, and 2.6 from the repositories to help them run test suites on multiple Python versions, as well as on PyPy, PyPy3, and Jython, which were already there. Fedora Workstation
The Workstation edition of Fedora 25 Beta is going to show off its stuff, too:GNOME 3.22 : Fedora 25 includes GNOME 3.22 in its pre-release and in the Final version, coming soon. Helpful new features include multiple file renaming, a redesigned keyboard settings tool, and many other UI improvements across the environment. For full details, refer to the GNOME 3.22 release notes . New Fedora media writer : The new Fedora Media Writer is a tool that downloads the latest stable Fedora for you. It then helps you write it to media such as a USB stick, so you can take Fedora for a spin on your system. If you like what you see, you can install to your system from the live environment. The Fedora Media Writer is available for windows, Mac OS, and linux. Wayland by default Wayland is the replacement for the legacy X11 display system. Wayland has been under development for several years. While like most software it still has some bugs, we believe it’s ready to serve as a default that works for many users. Users can still select the old X11 system if necessary to avoid a problem that affects them. Improved Flatpak support in the Software tool : The Software tool has the ability to install, update, and remove Flatpak software where a Fedora system is configured to point to a repo that offers it. GNOME Shell extensions are no longer checked for compatibility with the current version of the Shell. This was originally required because the GNOME interfaces were changing rapidly during the early days of GNOME 3. Now these interfaces have stabilized, and extensions can generally be expected to work with new releases. Any problems with an extension should be reported to the author through the homepage, as listed on the Extensions site. Fedora Server
Fedora 25 Server is also going to see some interesting changes in this cycle, particularly in the Cockpit tool:SELinux Troubleshooter module : Cockpit now has a SELinux Troubleshooter module similar to Fedora Workstation. If a system encounters an SELinux denial, will display information about the issue as well as suggestions for correcting the issue if it was unexpected. Without the module, an administrator has to notice a denial occurred, dig through log files for the denial, and search for workarounds. The SELinux Troubleshooter presents information clearly and to the point all from the convenience of Cockpit. Displays host SSH keys in the system dashboard : Easy to see and understand what SSH keys are added to the system for connecting to the machine. Includes support for network teaming, Docker volume, and storage management, as well as the creation of systemd timer units Supports multi-step (including two-factor) authentication
FreeIPA identity management system has also beenupgraded to 4.4 series:Topology management : FreeIPA web UI can now be used to visually manage topology graph for large deployments DNS sites : DNS management in FreeIPA now supports location-specific placement of services Subordinate Certificate Authorities : FreeIPA Certificate Authority now is able to create subordinate CAs to issue certificates with a specific scope Kerberos Authentication Indicators : Kerberos KDC now takes Authentication Indicators into account when issuing service tickets. This allows, for example, to require two-factor authenticated Kerberos credentials prior to obtaining tickets to a VPN service (supported by OpenConnect Server). Client certificate authentication in Web UI : FreeIPA Web UI and API end-points now can be configured to log-in with client certificates and smart cards. Active Directory integration improvements : a number of features were added for enterprise environments FreeIPA now supports alternative user principal names and suffixes from Active Directory and allows FreeIPA users to have Kerberos aliases Active Directory users can now manage own details through the command line interface (CLI), including public SSH keys and certificates In case of trusting multiple Active Directory forests, FreeIPA is now capable to automatically solve DNS namespace routing conflicts FreeIPA framework gained support for external plugins Performance of FreeIPA has been optimized for large environments Fedora Atomic Fedora Atomic includes a base image suitable for creating virtual machines, the Fedora Atomic Host image for creating hosts for container deployment, and a Docker image. This aspect of Fedora represents some of the most exciting changes, as we build more cloud- and container-ready tools into Fedora to create a fantastic
