Hi,

As usual. we need a single page release notes for Fedora 11 Alpha.
Edit the following page and fill in the notes for major new features, known bugs and things that need more explicit testing.

Add link to https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Releases/11/FeatureList and release schedule.

[ To get started, here are some notes]

* Ext4 has been a experimentally supported option from Fedora 9 release and is now the default filesystem for the Fedora 11 Alpha release. List of new features at

http://kernelnewbies.org/Ext4

FS shrink is not supported yet but planned to be made available by Fedora 11 release. Backup data for safety

* Btrfs (link to http://btrfs.wiki.kernel.org/index.php/Main_Page), the next generation filessytem is a experimentally supported option in this release. To enable it within the installer, pass "icantbelieveitsnotbtr" in the installation boot prompt.
