There are some new feature proposals to talk about forFedora 25, which will be officially released around November.

The latest self-contained change that is proposed for Fedora 25 is Rust compiler support. In particular, the hope is to package up the LLVM-based Rust compiler and its Cargo build system and offer them via the main Fedora repository. The current plan is for packaging Rust 1.10 and Cargo 0.11.

Having the Rust build environment in the Fedora repository will open up Rust programs to being packaged in Fedora as well. In particular, Firefox will begin using Rust code in production.

The Rust plans for Fedora 25 can be found via this Fedora Wiki page .

Another self-contained change proposal for Fedora 25 is packaging GNS3. GNS3 is described as a network simulator to design complex network topologies. The GNS3 F25 plans here .
