Fedora Core 4

A Fedora Core 4 proto-schedule is available at:


Generally, it's 3 4-week test releases, with a release in early/mid May.

So, what's planned for Fedora Core 4? Here's what we're looking
at from the Red Hat side of things:

- GCC 4, if it's ready

  We're not planning on holding for it, but if it's out in a
  reasonable time, sure. Failing that, we're looking at making
  more of the FORTIFY_SOURCE and other gcc & glibc security extensions
  integrated, if at all possible.

- The usual new stuff - GNOME 2.10, KDE 3.4, Xorg 6.8.2,
   OpenOffice 2.0 (maybe), etc.

- Xen and Virtualization

  This starts by integrating the Xen kernel stuff, and going
  from there.

- SELinux Episode III: Revenge of the AVC

  Yet more targets in the targeted policy.

- Faster boot

  Eliminating redundancy and old cruft in the bootup process,
  starting GDM early if possible, using newer and faster
  udev codebases, and other related tweaks.

- Java

  More native-compiled GCJ stuff. Including Eclipse.

- Package management

  GUI integration of system-config-packages, yum, and friends.

- more networking changes

  Further integration of NetworkManager

- PPC support

  For your brand spanking new MiniMac, or the p655 under your

- Extras at launch time. Or else.

  Hopefully, self explanatory. Could coincide with the move
  of some bits from Core to Extras. In fact, some of the
  stuff on this list of features may *be* in Extras.

Probably other stuff that I'm forgetting in here. I'm sure
more people can remind me.
