Fedora 19 Accepted Features

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


% Complete Name Summary Updated
75% CUPS 1.6 Update CUPS to the latest upstream release and use PDF rather than PostScript as baseline document format. 2013-01-30
0% Thermostat 1.0 Improved monitoring and serviceability tool for Java applications 2013-01-31
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% 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
95% Remove PyXML from Fedora The goal of this Feature is to remove the PyXML package from Fedora. 2013-01-11
80% Less Brittle Kerberos Make kerberos in Fedora simpler to use by removing some of the brittleness that are common failure points. In particular we remove the need for kerberos clients to sync their clocks, and remove the need to have reverse DNS records carefully setup for services. 2013-01-28
50% Anaconda Realm Integration Kickstart will have a 'realm join' command, to join the machine during install to an AD or FreeIPA domain. This will take place using one time passwords or password-less joins to an AD or FreeIPA domain. 2013-01-28
30% AnacondaNewUI Followup The purpose of this feature is to describe the high level work items we have for anaconda related to newui in F-19. 2013-02-19
70% New firstboot This feature proposes new initial setup application with better integration to the NewUI anaconda and to Gnome Initial Experience. 2013-01-25
99% Yum Groups as Objects Change the default yum configuration from group_command=compat to group_command=objects. 2013-01-25
10% Pcsd Configuration Wizards This feature will allow easier building of configuration wizards for pcsd (the Pacemaker/Corosync GUI), so through a simple configuration file we can create wizards for some common configurations (such as setting up a 2 nodes HA webserver). 2013-02-08
60% ns-3 Network Simulator Specfile is posted for review: 2012-12-29
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
50% FreeIPA 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
20% Usermode Migration Access control of privileged operations for ordinary users should be handled exclusively by a centrally managed authority. 2012-10-16
100% Checkpoint/Restore Add support to checkpoint and restore processes. Checkpointing processes can be used for fault tolerance and/or load balancing. 2013-01-22
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
30% Feature Name 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
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 workarounds. 2013-01-16
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% KDE Plasma Workspaces 4.10 Rebase to KDE Plasma Workspace 4.10 including Plasma Desktop and Netbook workspaces, the KDE Applications and the KDE Platform. 2013-02-13
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
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
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

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

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

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
10% Fedora Add providers and capabilites to the OpenLMI infrastructure that would ease the remote system management. 2013-01-25
