      Wayland 1.10 just didnt support enough stuff to be made default . Wayland 1.11 in F25 should have most support they need in it to make it Default. but some people forget, Wayland is just a Graphics Stack.

        It's not so much a "delay" or "traditional", but rather that Fedora deliberately doesn't lock itself into a firm, fixed schedule. The project has guidelines that outline the issues that can block a release. Target dates are essentially organizational tools.

        The nightlies are produced and made available every day.

          People don't bother to look, then assume someone is hiding something.

            F24 Alpha Go/No-Go meeting
            Are they deciding whether to include AlphaGo in Fedora or what?

            I just had to. AlphaGo has been in the news lately and AlphaGo or no go meeting sounded funny.

              Gnome with Wayland is *not* dropped, it just doesn't look like it will be the default. You are very welcome to choose it from GDM as session and report any problems you see in bug trackers

                  That's what you call it. The rest of us are looking at how Canonical does it (i.e. they set some dates and stick to them) and then decide you're just delaying

                    I can only speak for my experience regarding the upgrades of Fedora. I had a computer which hat Fedora 18 on it and it upgraded without problems to 19, then to 20, after that to 21, to 22 and to 23. That was the First distribution where upgrades worked for me (debian 4 to 5 and 5 to 6 and (k)ubuntu at around the same time always ended with a non bootable system. I cannot speak for arch though.

                    Though it would really be good if Fedora would add something like ffmpeg, mpv, obs-studio and other such free stuff to their repository (atleast for the workstation version).

                      Serious question; When was the last fedora release that wasn't delayed?
                      I'm not talking about delayed alpha, beta or rc. Just the final release in regards to the original schedule.

                      I can't find a "fedora releases delay overview", but am i right in guessing that there was never a Fedora (since it's named Fedora) release on schedule?
                      That the last - on schedule - release was Fedora Core <somenumber>?
