DISCUSSION DRAFT
This is a draft only for discussion. This is not a final set of talking points, nor are all of the features listed here complete at the time of this draft. Please do a reality check before using these talking points as anything other than a discussion draft!

These are the Talking Points for the Fedora 25 release. For information on how these talking points were chosen, see Talking Points SOP. They are intended to help Ambassadors quickly present an overview of highlighted features when talking about the release, and to help drive content for the release, etc.

The talking points are based in part on the Change Set for this release.

  • "Secondary architectures" now "Alternate architectures"


Fedora Cloud

Terms of interest:

  • Fedora Atomic

Perhaps most useful for typical Fedora user is to know where they can use these, what can use these for and how to migrate from desktop experience to running own services on a hosting platform or their own server.

Cloud overview


Fedora Server

Cockpit

  • SELinux Troubleshooter module: Cockpit now has a SELinux Troubleshooter module similar to Fedora Workstation
    • If system encounters an SELinux denial, will display information about the issue as well as suggestions for correcting the issue if it was unexpected
    • Without the module, an administrator has to notice a denial occurred, dig through log files for the denial, and search for workarounds – the SELinux Troubleshooter presents information clearly and to the point all from the convenience of Cockpit
  • Displays host SSH keys in the system dashboard: Easy to see and understand what SSH keys are added to the system for connecting to the machine
  • Includes support for network teaming, Docker volume and storage management as well as the creation of systemd timer units
  • Supports multi-step (incl. 2FA) authentication


Fedora Workstation

  • Wayland by default:
    • Wayland is the replacement for the legacy X11 display system. Wayland has been under development for several years. While like most software it still has some bugs, we believe it's ready to serve as a default that works for many users.
    • Users can still select the old X11 system if necessary to avoid a problem that affects them.
  • Improved Flatpak support in the Software tool: The Software tool has the ability to install, update, and remove Flatpak software where a Fedora system is configured to point to a repo that offers it.
