Fedora 25 Linux Now in Final Freeze, Slated for Release on November 15, 2016

The Fedora 25 Linux operating system has been in development for the past four months, during which it received one Alpha and one Beta milestone. Rawhide became Fedora 25 on February 23, 2016. Since then, the distro received a single delay due to some critical bugs being present in the Alpha build, and we’re now looking at a final release date of November 15, 2016, if no other blockers are found during the Final Freeze two-week period. Fedora 25 promises exciting new features, among which we can mention better dual-GPU integration in the GNOME 3.22 desktop environment, which is the default for the Workstation edition, by implementing a right-click context menu item to allow users to launch apps or games with the discrete graphics cards, support for Raspberry Pi 2 and Raspberry Pi 3 single-board computers, the latest kernel from the Linux 4.8 series, KDE Plasma 5.8 LTS desktop environment, and much more.
