Fedora 24 was set to release on 17th, March 2016. But the schedule has been updated by 2 weeks. Now the new schedule is below. But the reasons that the schedule has been updated is the changes requested by developers around the globe. Some changes affect low-level components, like the compiler and the C library which require rebuilding each package in Fedora collection. To accommodate that FESCo (the Fedora Engineering Steering Committee) in coordination with the Fedora Program Manager (Jan Kurik), increased schedule by 2 weeks. But updating schedule does not mean only the Fedora release schedule is going to be updated by 2 weeks but every date involve in the development of Fedora 24 will be increased. For example, developers who could not request feature due to request submission deadline 12th, Jan can now request because the deadline to submit feature has been updated too.
