Fedora 25 Officially Released & I Highly Recommend It

Fedora 25 was officially christened this morning.

Matthew Miller announced the Fedora 25 release a few minutes ago, "Providing many of the latest open source developer and desktop tools, Fedora 25 Workstation delivers a host of new features, including the long-awaited official debut of the Wayland display server. Replacing the legacy X11 system, Wayland has been under development for several years and seeks to provide a smoother, richer experience for graphical environments and better capabilities for modern graphics hardware. To further enhance ease-of-use, Fedora 25 Workstation also features GNOME 3.22, which offers multiple file renaming, a redesigned keyboard settings tool and additional user interface improvements. Workstation users will also be pleased with the inclusion of decoding support for the MP3 media format."

I've already switched to it and firmly believe Fedora 25 is the project's best release yet. I encourage you to upgrade or try it out if you are thinking of Fedora Linux. Super happy with its many changes, Wayland by default, and other improvements.
