[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


The Fedora Project is pleased to announce the immediate availability of the

in November.

We are also simultaneously releasing the F25 Alpha for Power64 and 64-bit ARM 
(AArch64). These are available from:

== What is the Alpha release? ==

The Alpha release contains all the features of Fedora 25's editions in a form 
that anyone can help test. This testing, guided by the Fedora QA team, helps 
us target and identify bugs. When these bugs are fixed, we make a Beta release 
available. A Beta release is code-complete and bears a very strong resemblance 
to the third and final release. The final release of Fedora 25 is expected in 
November. If you take the time to download and try out the Alpha, you can 
check and make sure the things that are important to YOU are working. Every 
bug you find and report doesn't just help you, it improves the experience of 
millions of Fedora users worldwide! Together, we can make Fedora rock-solid. 
We have a culture of coordinating new features and pushing fixes upstream as 
much as we can, and your feedback improves not only Fedora, but Linux and Free 
software as a whole.


== Issues and Details ==

Since this is an alpha release, we expect that you may encounter bugs or 
missing features. To report issues encountered during testing, contact the 
Fedora QA team via the mailing list or in #fedora-qa on Freenode. As testing 
progresses, common issues are tracked on the Common F25 Bugs page.


For tips on reporting a bug effectively, read "how to file a bug report".


== Release Schedule ==

The full release schedule is available on the Fedora wiki:


The current schedule calls for a beta release towards the middle of October, 
and the final release in November. Be aware that these dates are development 
targets. Some projects release on a set date regardless of feature 
completeness or bugs; others wait until certain thresholds for functionality 
or testing are met. Fedora uses a hybrid model, with milestones subject to 
adjustment. This allows us to make releases with new features and newly-
integrated and updated upstream software while also retaining high quality.
