Fedora Linux 40 Accepted System-Wide Changes

Porting Fedora to Modern C

Back in 1999, a new revision of the C standard removed several backwards compatibility features. However, GCC still accepts these obsolete constructs by default. Support for these constructs is confusing to programmers and potentially affect GCC's ability to implement features from future C standards. It is expected that a future GCC version (likely GCC 14) will disable support for these legacy language constructs by default. The goal of this change is to prepare Fedora for this transition.

Fedora Linux 40 Accepted Self-Contained Changes

Retire python3.7

The python3.7 package will be retired without replacement from Fedora Linux 40. Python 3.7 will be End of Life in June 2023 and it will be kept around only to test software targeting Debian 10 “Buster” LTS. The removal is more or less aligned with Debian 10 TLS EOL (June 2024) -- Fedora 39 (the last one to include Python 3.7) will likely EOL on 2024-11-12.
