Fedora 18 Accepted Features

These features have been accepted by the Fedora Engineering Steering Committee for the Fedora 18 Release.


 % Complete Name Summary Updated
30% Active Directory Fedora should be able to be used on an Active Directory domain (or other kerberos realms, such as IPA) out of the box. It should be easy to configure domain logins on a Fedora machine, and then it should be intuitive and uneventful to login with those credentials. 2012-05-25
0% Boost 1.50 Update Boost to the upstream (latest) 1.50 release. 2012-05-28
60% GHC 7.4 Update Fedora Haskell packages to the latest major version 7.4.1 of the Glasgow Haskell Compiler. 2012-05-08
10% KRB5 Credential Cache Move Changes the default location of Kerberos credential cache from living in /tmp/krb5cc_UID_XXXXXX to being /run/user/$USERNAME/krb5cc 2012-02-23
25% KRB5 DIR: Credential Caches Kerberos 1.10 added a new cache storage type, DIR: which allows Kerberos to maintain TGTs for multiple KDCs simultaneously and auto-select between them when negotiating with Kerberized resources. Fedora should switch to using the DIR: cache format over the older FILE: cache format to support accessing mulitple Kerberos realms. 2012-05-01
30% NetworkManager Hotspots This enhancement to NetworkManager will enable easy-to-use AP-mode for supported hardware, which solves compatibility problems and provides a smoother user experience. 2012-01-24
50% New Installer UI Enhancing the anaconda installer with a new user interface, improving both the end-user experience as well as ease of implementation of new features, particularly new storage technologies, for developers. 2012-05-07
0% OpenShift Origin OpenShift Origin is a cloud application platform as a service (PaaS). It is the open-sourced, community-supported version of the OpenShift service. 2012-05-08
100% PCRE 8.30 Upgrade to PCRE (Perl-Compatible Regular Expression) library 8.30 or newer. 2012-02-28
100% procps-ng Migration from legacy procps tools to procps-ng (next generation procps tools) 2012-03-07
0% Rework Package Groups Reorganize how the distribution is constructed. 2012-02-14
0% RPM 4.10 Update RPM to 4.10 2011-12-02
100% /tmp on tmpfs Mount a tmpfs on /tmp by default. (Administrators can override this.) 2012-04-02
20% Usermode Migration Access control of privileged operations for ordinary users should be handled exclusively by a centrally managed authority. Usermode/consolehelper should be phased out and be replaced entirely by PolicyKit. 2012-04-03
100% Xfce 4.10 Updates the Fedora Xfce desktop to version 4.10. This release incorporates major changes to the core of the Xfce desktop environment, and includes numerous bugfixes and improvements. 2012-05-04
