Glibc Unicode 7.0

We are updating Glibc Unicode data from Unicode 5.1 to Unicode 7.0 version. It took a long time, since there was not much documentation on how to update Unicode data and also there was the chance of loosing backward compatibility. Most of the issues are resolved now and patches are ready for inclusion. This update adds around 8000 supported characters in Glibc, and also corrects the Unicode data of many characters per the latest Unicode standard.

RpmOstree - Server side composes and atomic upgrades

The rpm-ostree tool provides a new way to deploy and manage RPM-based operating systems. Instead of performing a package-by-package install and upgrade on each client machine, the tooling supports "composing" sets of packages on a server side, and then clients can perform atomic upgrades as a tree.

UEFI Secure Boot Blacklist Updates

Currently our implementation of UEFI Secure Boot does not include a facility to apply blacklist ("dbx") updates enabled by default. We provide a utility, dbxtool, which uses a systemd service to apply updates, and when there are updates we update that package with the new data. dbxtool is currently not installed on UEFI machines by default, and when it is installed, its systemd service does not default to enabled.

python-dateutil 2.x

The package providing `dateutil` python libraries is currently on version 1.5. Early releases in the 2.x series of python-dateutil would work only for python3, so the package was not updated in Fedora. Now, python-dateutil is at version 2.4 and does work with python2. Fedora packages can be updated to use the newer version.
