Fedora 25 Alpha released with default wayland support

Keeping the tradition of Fedora distributions, the fedora project has released Fedora 25 Alpha, first development build of upcoming stable fedora release. This release includes all official fedora flavors including fedora workstation, server, cloud and other community spins and lab editions.

Fedora 25 Alpha is shipped with latest development version of Linux Kernel and GNOME desktop. It is using linux kernel 4.8-rc2 and GNOME 3.21.3, which is a development release of upcoming stable GNOME 3.22. It is expected that, final fedora 25 release will be shipped with GNOME 3.22.

As different from usual fedora announcements and related news, this time fedora project has not published a release announcement in Fedora Magazine. However, a brief release announcement is available in Fedora Wiki Pages.
The Alpha release contains all the features of Fedora 25's editions in a form that anyone can help test. This testing, guided by the Fedora QA team, helps us target and identify bugs. When these bugs are fixed, we make a Beta release available. A Beta release is code-complete and bears a very strong resemblance to the third and final release. The final release of Fedora 25 is expected in November. If you take the time to download and try out the Alpha, you can check and make sure the things that are important to YOU are working. Every bug you find and report doesn't just help you, it improves the experience of millions of Fedora users worldwide! Together, we can make Fedora rock-solid. We have a culture of coordinating new features and pushing fixes upstream as much as we can, and your feedback improves not only Fedora, but Linux and Free software as a whole. 
For more information, you can see release announcement published in Fedora Wiki Pages and Fedora 25 release schedule.
