Fedora 19 Accepted Features

These features have been accepted by the Fedora Engineering Steering Committee for the Fedora 19 Release.


 % Complete Name Summary Updated
66% Update RPM to 4.11 Update RPM to 4.11 in Fedora 19. 2012-11-12
5% PHP 5.5 To provide the latest PHP stack. Dec 12
83% 3D Printing Bring 3D printing tools to Fedora and allow users of 3D printers, such as RepRap, to be fully satisfied with software in the repositories, without need to download binary blobs or run Python code from git. 2012-12-31
60% Node.js The Node.js JavaScript runtime and associated ecosystem, including the npm package manager. (2013-01-07)
10% Adding NetworkManager Connections via CLI Support for adding new NetworkManager connections using the nmcli commandline tool. 2013-01-08
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. 02-Jan-2013
40% Enlightenment Integrate Enlightenment in Fedora 2013-01-03
20% Boost 1.53 This feature brings Boost 1.53.0 to Fedora 19. 2013-02-10
15% Erlyvideo Add Erlyvideo video streaming server to the Fedora repositories. 2013-01-31
10% BIND 10 BIND10 is next generation of the popular BIND9 DNS server rewritten from scratch. BIND10 suite includes both DNS and DHCP service servers. 08-Jan-2013
10% Fix Network Name Resolution IPv4 and IPv6 host/service name resolution doesn't work very well in Fedora. The getaddrinfo() function in glibc returns wrong results in many cases. This feature aims to fix a bunch of name resolution bugs in glibc that prevent applications from fully using name resolution functions without doing a bunch of workaround. 2013-01-16
45% RemovePyXML The goal of this Feature is to remove the PyXML package from Fedora. Jan 11, 2013
60% Ns3 Specfile is posted for review: 2012-12-29
50% IPA v3 Trust Improvements Multiple Domain Controllers and multiple additional DNS domains managed by FreeIPA can now be accessible via trusting relationship by Active Directory domain members. Additionally, Global Catalog service is provided for use by AD clients, allowing FreeIPA users to be included into access-control lists of AD resources. 2013-01-16
50% Checkpoint Restore Add support to checkpoint and restore processes. Checkpointing processes can be used for fault tolerance and/or load balancing. 2013-01-22
30% Improvement of AD Integration in SSSD The next major release of SSSD will include support for more advanced AD features for domain members. This includes site support and trusted domains. Additionally it will include a plugin for the cifs-utils package which would allow a CIFS client to use SSSD for lookups which were currently only possible with winbind. 2013-01-23
0% Syslinux as optional bootloader 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. January 7 2013
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
0% Java 8 Tech Preview Add a tech preview preview of the the upcoming version of Java (OpenJDK8) to Fedora 19 2013-01-17
80% Scratch Scratch is an educational programming environment which makes it easy to create games, animations, and art. It's open source and would be a great addition to Fedora. January 16, 2013
50% GCC 4.8 Switch GCC in Fedora 19 to 4.8.x, rebuild all packages with it. 2013-01-08

50% KScreen Replace current KDE screen management software by KScreen. 2012-01-22
25% JRuby 1.7 JRuby is an alternative Ruby implementation with fast growing user base due to its great performance in parallel tasks. Although JRuby 1.6.7 is already in Fedora, this feature brings in new minor version and better Fedora integration. 2013-1-16
70% Guile2 Update GNU Guile to version 2.0.7 in Fedora 19. 2013-01-21
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. 27 November 2012
25% 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. 21-December-2012
95% Systemd 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
40% OpenStack Grizzly OpenStack will be upgraded to the next major stable release, called "Grizzly". In addition the new OpenStack "heat" and "ceilometer" incubation projects will be included. 2013-01-17
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
50% MEMSTOMP Include the MEMSTOMP DSOs in Fedora 19 to enable developers to more quickly detect certain library calls which result in undefined behaviour due to overlapping memory arguments. 2013-01-22
