Fedora 25 Is Still On Track To Use Wayland By Default

Back in August Fedora 25 switched to using Wayland by default in time for the project's alpha release. With next week's beta release, Fedora 25 is still using Wayland by default and it looks like it will remain that way unless any showstoppers appear.

Initially it wasn't clear if Fedora 25 would continue using Wayland by default as it neared the final release, but so far so good. Adam Williamson of Fedora QA confirmed in the forums, "Wayland is the default for Fedora Workstation in F25 Beta, and barring any crazy showstoppers we didn't know about showing up between now and Final, is likely to be the default for Final too."

Great to see Wayland still being in shape for Fedora 25 after all of the work invested in it and the GNOME 3.22 stack by Red Hat and the GNOME community. Fedora 25 is scheduled to be released mid-November and with all of my F25 and Rawhide tests on different development boxes, the Fedora Workstation experience with GNOME 3.22 continues to be going well.
