GNU C Library 2.25 is set to be introduced in Fedora 26.

The Fedora Engineering and Steering Committee has approved of glibc 2.25 to ship in Fedora 26.

Glibc 2.25 was released earlier this month with a variety of additions and improvements. Glibc 2.25 adds getrandom() and getentropy() functions, new math functions, most of glibc can now be built with the stack smashing protector, and a variety of other changes to this important part of the GNU stack.
