66% Multiqueue virtio-net Multiqueue virtio-net provides an approach that scales the network performance as the increasing of the number of vcpus by allowing them to transfer packets through more than one virtqueue pairs. 2013-01-29
80% MinGW GCC 4.8 Update the mingw-gcc cross-compiler to gcc 4.8 and rebuild all MinGW packages against it 2013-01-26
90% More Mobile Broadband New mobile broadband devices supporting multiple technologies (eg, CDMA/EVDO/LTE and/or GSM/UMTS/LTE) and using new proprietary protocols are becoming common in the marketplace, and are not well supported by ModemManager 0.6 and earlier. We developed ModemManager 0.7/0.8 with a new API specifically to address this issue and to be more compatible with future mobile broadband devices. 2013-1-28
100% NFStest Provides a set of tools for testing either the NFS client or the NFS server, most of the functionality is focused mainly on testing the client. 2012-11-27

5% Package Signature Checking During OS Installation One long-standing problem in Fedora is that we don't check package signatures during initial operating system installation. This has been a persistent issue since the very beginning of Fedora (and even in Red Hat Linux before it.) The reason for this has always been that there's no way to form any root of trust for the signatures in the repositories, and thus no reason they wouldn't have been modified along with whatever package would need to be re-signed after tampering. 2013-01-02
75% Feature Name: Performance Co-Pilot Feature Update A new feature release of PCP (Performance Co-Pilot). 2013-01-25

70% QXL/Spice KMS Driver Currently the QXL driver is X.org only, a KMS driver is required to move forward with projects like spice 3D, and also to allow more features to be show in virt environments like plymouth. 2012-09-15
100% Update RPM to 4.11 Update RPM to 4.11 in Fedora 19. 2013-02-15

95% Remove PyXML from Fedora The goal of this Feature is to remove the PyXML package from Fedora. 2013-01-11
95% Replace MySQL with MariaDB MariaDB, a community developed fork of MySQL, will be the default implementation of MySQL in Fedora 19. 2013-01-31
10% Ruby 2.0.0 Ruby 2.0.0 is the latest stable version of Ruby, with major increases in speed and reliability. With this major update from Ruby 1.9.3 in Fedora 18 to Ruby 2.0 in Fedora 19, alongside JRuby, Fedora becomes the superior Ruby development platform. 2013-01-30

60% Shared System Certificates Make NSS, GnuTLS, OpenSSL and Java share a default source for retrieving system certificate anchors and black list information. This is an initial but useful step in the direction of a comprehensive solution. 2013-02-26
50% Simplify Java/Maven Packaging using XMvn Introduce new Maven packaging tooling with new macros, automated install section and more 2013-01-24
0% Syslinux Option This feature will make Syslinux an optional bootloader for Fedora, in kickstart and via a hidden Anaconda option. When used this way, it will replace grub2. 2013-01-07
100% systemd Calendar Timers systemd has supported timer units for activating services based on time since its inception. However, it only could schedule services based on monotonic time events (i.e. "every 5 minutes"). With this feature in place systemd also supports calendar time events (i.e. "every monday morning 6:00 am", or "at midnight on every 1st, 2nd, 3rd of each month if that's saturday or sunday"). 2012-01-17
100% systemd Lightweight Containers For a longer time systemd already included the systemd-nspawn tool as a more powerful version of chroot(1), primarily inteded for use in development, experimenting, debugging, instrumentation, testing and building of software. With Fedora 19 we want to make nspawn considerably more useful, so that it can easily be used to start containers capable of booting up a complete and unmodified Fedora distribution inside as normal system services. 2012-01-17
100% systemd Message Catalog Logging is essential for finding and tracking down system problems. Just finding and tracking them down however is seldom enough to actually get them fixed. With Journal Message Catalogs we want to link helpful meta information directly to many log messages applications generate, keyed off an ID identifying the type of message. This localized meta information can help the user to fix the problem, refer him to additional documentation, or even inform him where to get further help. 2012-01-17
95% systemd/udev Predictable Network Interface Names The udevd service has a long history of providing predicatable names for block devices and others. For Fedora 19 we'd like to provide the same for network interfaces, following a similar naming scheme, but only as fallback if not other solution such as biosdevname is installed or the administrator manually defined network interface names via udev rules or the old network scripts. 2012-01-29
80% systemd Resource Control systemd already has support for assigning specific resources to system services using various configuration settings. With Fedora 19 we'd like to build on that, and add the ability for the admin to dynamically query the resource control parameters and change them at runtime. 2012-01-17
25.3 Systemtap 2.2 A new feature release of Systemtap 2013-01-28
0% Thermostat 1.0 Improved monitoring and serviceability tool for Java applications 2013-01-31
50% Trusted Network Connect (TNC) This feature provides Trusted Network Connect(TNC) framework that can be used to assess and verify clients' posture (or integrity measurements or configuration) and its compliance to a predefined policy with existing network access control (NAC) solutions. 2013-01-24
20% Usermode Migration Access control of privileged operations for ordinary users should be handled exclusively by a centrally managed authority. 2012-10-16
50% Virt Device Failover Support for transparent failover between an assigned and an emulated device, allows enabling the migration and overcommit dynamically, while still gaining the performance benefits of device assignment and without disrupting the guest operation. Jan 29, 2013
60% Virt Storage Migration Migrate a running virtual machine from one host to another, including in use storage, with no downtime. No need for a shared storage location between the two. 2013-01-26
50% Virtio RNG Provide a paravirtual random number generator to virtual machines, to prevent entropy starvation in guests. 2013-01-26
10% Yesod Web Framework Yesod is a Haskell web framework for productive development of type-safe, RESTful, high performance web applications. 2013-01-29
0% Add LVM Thin provisioning support to the yum-fs-snapshot plugin For the purposes of system rollback: Provide the ability to create a snapshot of all thinly provisioned LVM2 volumes associated with FS mount points that are relevant to a yum transaction. 2013-01-28
99% Yum Groups as Objects Change the default yum configuration from group_command=compat to group_command=objects. 2013-01-25
95% GSS Proxy The main purpose of this project is to replace rpc.svcgssd(8), the server-side rpcsec_gss daemon. 2013-01-23
75% libkkc libkkc, a new Japanese Kana Kanji input library, will be available in Fedora 19, along with an IBus input method engine which uses libkkc as backend (ibus-kkc). ibus-kkc will be the default Japanese input method in place of ibus-anthy. 2013-02-12
10% oVirt engine 3.2 The oVirt engine is the management application of the oVirt virtualization platform. Version 3.2 is the latest version, including many new features. 2013-01-28
