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
- 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.
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.
