{{draft}}
The Fedora Project is pleased to announce the immediate availability of Fedora 25, the next big step our journey into the containerized, modular future! Fedora is a global community that works together to lead the advancement of free and open source software. As part of the community’s mission the project delivers three editions, each one a free, Linux-based operating system tailored to meet specific use cases: Fedora 25 Atomic Host, Fedora 25 Server, and Fedora 25 Workstation. Each edition is built from a common set of base packages, which form the foundation of the Fedora operating system. As with all new versions of Fedora, Fedora 25 provides many bug fixes and tweaks to these underlying components, as well as new and enhanced packages, including:


= Fedora 25 for AArch64 =
* Docker 1.12 for building and running containerized applications
* Node.js 6.9.1, the latest version of the popular server-side JavaScript engine
* Support for Rust, a faster and more stable system programming language
* Multiple Python versions — 2.6, 2.7, 3.3, 3.4 and 3.5 — to help run test suites across several Python configurations, as well as PyPy, PyPy3, and Jython


For the first time, all of our secondary architectures, '''AArch64''', Power64 (ppc64, ppc64le) and s390x, are released simultaneously, rather than trailing a little behind. This includes the Server edition for all architectures and the Cloud and Docker base images for AArch64 and Power64. Along with all the same enhancements as in the primary architectures in Fedora 25, AArch64 and Power64 now have support for golang, nodejs, mongodb; along with numerous other architecture-specific enhancements. The architecture release notes pages on the wiki have more specifics for each. Download these from https://dl.fedoraproject.org/pub/fedora-secondary/releases/25/.
=== Fedora Server ===


== Another Step in the Fedora Journey ==
In addition to the flexible multi-role functionality provided by rolekit, Fedora 25 Server now delivers a new SELinux Troubleshooter module for Cockpit. Similar to what is available on Fedora Workstation, the module helps provide suggestions for a user when an SELinux denial is encountered, which otherwise requires log checking and manual workarounds. Fedora 25 Server also will now display SSH keys in the Cockpit system dashboard to make it easier for administrators to see what keys are connecting to a given machine. Additionally, support is now included for multi-step (including two-factor) authentication services. The FreeIPA identity management system has also been upgraded to 4.4 series, which offers a set of new features for servers deployed in an identity management role. Some of these enhancements include:


The Fedora Project has embarked on a great journey... redefining what an operating system should be for users and developers. Such innovation does not come overnight, and Fedora 25 is one big step on the road to the next generation of Linux distributions. But that does not mean that Fedora 25 is some "interim" release; there are great new features for Fedora users to deploy in their production environments right now! There are many features in this new release, highlighted here. For more detailed information on Fedora 25, please read the [https://docs.fedoraproject.org/release-notes Release Notes].
* '''Topology management''': FreeIPA web UI can now be used to visually manage topology graph for large deployments.
 
* '''DNS sites''': DNS management in FreeIPA now supports location-specific placement of services.
== Server ==
* '''Subordinate Certificate Authorities''': FreeIPA Certificate Authority now is able to create subordinate CAs to issue certificates with a specific scope.
 
* '''Kerberos Authentication Indicators''': Kerberos KDC now takes Authentication Indicators into account when issuing service tickets. For example, two-factor authenticated Kerberos credentials can now be required prior to obtaining tickets to a VPN service (supported by OpenConnect Server).
Fedora 25 Server edition is more streamlined and introduces more modularity, which will become a major factor in future Fedora releases, even as unnecessary packages were removed and the installer has a smaller footprint. FreeIPA 4.3 is a major feature for Fedora 25 Server. FreeIPA is an integrated security information management solution. This new version of FreeIPA features simplified replica installation and improved replication technology management.
 
== Cloud ==
 
Fedora is on its way to being the best platform for containerized applications, from base Fedora container images to a full-featured platform as a service to run and manage them. As we continue on this part of the journey, we are packaging OpenShift Origin so it is easy to deploy. OpenShift Origin is a Platform as a Service system based around Kubernetes, a production-grade container orchestration project. OpenShift Origin is optimized for application development and deployment. Origin makes it easy for developers to get started building applications in containers and for operators to manage them. While not shipped in Fedora 25, per se, we have new infrastructure for developing container images with applications layered on top of the base Fedora Docker image. Fedora Developers will also see a layered image build service, which provides tools for Fedora contributors to start creating and shipping layered container images in Fedora 25 and beyond.

Fedora 25 Released!

The Fedora Project is pleased to announce the immediate availability of Fedora 25, the next big step our journey into the containerized, modular future! Fedora is a global community that works together to lead the advancement of free and open source software. As part of the community’s mission the project delivers three editions, each one a free, Linux-based operating system tailored to meet specific use cases: Fedora 25 Atomic Host, Fedora 25 Server, and Fedora 25 Workstation.

Make Fedora Even Better

If you want to take an active hand in making Fedora even better, there are many ways you can contribute. There are many roles that you can participate. Visit http://whatcanidoforfedora.org/ for more information! While this is a general release, there is always a chance you may encounter bugs or missing features. To report issues encountered during testing, contact the Fedora QA team via the mailing list or in #fedora-qa on Freenode IRC. As testing progresses, common issues are tracked on the Common F25 Bugs page.

For tips on reporting a bug effectively, read "how to file a bug report."

Network Installation

A network installation is the preferred installation method for current Aarch64 hardware targets. In order to begin you will need to setup the installation server, a guide can be found below:

http://docs.fedoraproject.org/en-US/Fedora/25/html/Installation_Guide/chap-pxe-server-setup.html
Warning.png
Note
The above documentation references grubx86.efi, but this is the name for x86_64 EFI grub binaries. The grub binary name on AArch64 systems is grubaa64.efi.

The instructions above reference installing grub-efi and shim for copying into the TFTP directory. This will not work for aarch64 binaries. One option is to download the rpms from the tree below and use rpm2cpio to extract and copy the files from there.

Once configured use the Fedora 25 for AArch64 installation trees below:

Install with QEMU

Warning.png
Note
You will need to use qemu-2.3.0-4+ for the below to work.

To use Fedora 25 on QEMU you will need to use 'edk2-20160418gita8c39ba-1' (currently in updates for all releases of Fedora) or later.

sudo dnf install edk2-aarch64 libguestfs-tools-c

To install:

sudo virt-install    \
      --name Fedora_25_AArch64 --ram 4096 --arch aarch64 \
      --disk size=8 --os-variant fedora22   \
      --location https://dl.fedoraproject.org/pub/fedora-secondary/releases/25/Everything/aarch64/os/
*Add kickstart with (root password is 'fedora'):
      --extra-args "inst.ks=https://pwhalen.fedorapeople.org/kickstarts/Fedora-Minimal-AArch64.ks"

IMPORTANT - When installing you will need to allocate at least 4G of ram. This can be reduced post-install. Failure to use enough RAM will result in a kernel oops or drop to a dracut prompt.
