Fedora Is Hosting A Wayland Test Day Tomorrow

The Fedora QA team is organizing a Fedora 25 Workstation Wayland Test Day for tomorrow, 13 October. This is to find any last-minute bugs with next month's Fedora 25 Workstation release still set to utilize this next-gen successor to X11 by default.

Adam Williamson has announced the Thursday test day in hopes of those within the Fedora community and others just wanting to test a GNOME Wayland Live DVD/USB spin can help in testing GNOME's Wayland implementation across a diverse range of hardware.

As mentioned recently, Fedora 25 is still planning to use Wayland by default after successful rounds of it in the alpha and beta releases. Hopefully no last minute issues crop up and they'll be able to stick with it for the GA release.

Test day details can be found via this Wiki page including a special live ISO spin for testing.
