    btrfs as default? that filesystem is in real live applications like live image creation using live-build (debian) slow as hell - takes several times longer than the same tried with ext4. Is there any special mount option needed that this task is getting faster or is their usual fedora dev workload so much differnent...

      Brtfs as default file system? They must be mad. I would never put my data on a such filesystem. It doesn't even have a fsck file system check. How can they even consider moving to Btrfs?

        Thanks but no thanks. I will never use the Oracle FS.

          Note that Btrfs does not yet have a fsck tool that can fix errors. While Btrfs is stable on a stable machine, it is currently possible to corrupt a filesystem irrecoverably if your machine crashes or loses power on disks that don't handle flush requests correctly. This will be fixed when the fsck tool is ready.
          https://btrfs.wiki.kernel.org/

          Fedora's feature plans are flexible and if fsck for BTRFS isn't ready in time they will simply stay with ext4 until next release.

          Contingency Plan
          We can just keep ext4 as the default installed file system.

          That's rich.
          Btrfs is licensed under the GPL and open for contribution from anyone.

            Josef Basik, Red Hat Btrfs filesystem developer is working on this problem. This is one of the things (along with fsck) that must be in place for Fedora 17. If not, Ext4 will stay as default.

              Glad to see official support for D2! (Though I use Arch myself...)

                What do they mean by D2 support? GDC installed by default? LLVM D compiler installed by default? DMD installed by default? Something entirely different?

                  In fact if I am to believe Fedora's wiki, D2 was included in Fedora 16 already. Also, they are shipping LDC, not DMD.

                    i wonder if ext4 -> btrfs will be handled in the way as gnome2 -> gnome3. i.e. drop ext4 from the distro, and call anyone who does not want to 'upgrade' a luddite, or suggest that they use fat32. that would be fun. :-)

                      We in the D community are very happy to see continued support for D2 in Fedora. Please let us know what we can do to help. I announced this thread on reddit: http://www.reddit.com/r/programming/...ort_for_the_d/

                        Fedora16 has features for desktop users also.Gnome provides system settings gains an "Online Accounts" panel, which provides a central point for managing online accounts like Google, Facebook, etc.

                          Fedora 17 provides ldc compiler for D programming. But in more it add some library: GTKD, Derelict, DSQLITE, tango 2, phobos. And dmdfe will be 2.0.57 it could be upgrade to next.
