Tonight is the deadline for submitting new feature proposals to be considered for the release of Fedora 19.

Fedora 19 feature proposals have already been covered in several Phoronix articles in recent weeks:

- Fedora 19 Might Replace Rsyslogd With Journald
- Possible Fedora 19 Features Are Published
- More Fedora 19 Features Are Proposed
- More Fedora 19 Feature Talk: BIND10, GCC 4.8, E17, Etc
- There's Talk Again About Btrfs For Fedora
- Fedora Looks To Replace MySQL With MariaDB
- Fedora 19 Feature Talk: Cloud, Java 8, Yum, Syslinux
- Fedora Proposal To Use Cinnamon Desktop By Default
- Systemd Dreams Up New Feature, Makes It Like Cron
- Fedora 19 Features: GLIBC 2.17, GNOME 3.8, MATE 1.6

As of this evening, what appears to be the last of the feature proposals for Fedora 19, which is codenamed Schrödinger's Cat, consist of:

Better NetworkManager IPSec Integration - IPsec, the Internet Protocol Security for securing communications via authenticating and encrypting every IP packet, may see improvements within the realm of NetworkManager. This feature is to improve the existing NetworkManager IPSec VPN plug-in to better support use-cases and address known issues.

Anaconda Realm Integration - Support for Kickstart to have a Realm command with realmd, an on-demand system DBus service, for joining an AD or FreeIPA domain during the Fedora Linux installation.

AnacondaNewUI Followup - Fedora 18 is a shit wreck in regards to its new installer due to the Anaconda rewrite, but it looks like it may get a bit better within Fedora 19. Among the work items for this Anaconda user-interface follow-up is add in advanced storage capabilities, making system-config-kickstart work again, GTK+ fixes, review UX design suggestions, improve Anaconda's threading, allow selecting multiple disks for the installation, a faster way to delete all data on the disk, fix support for adding RPM package repositories, and various other items.

Yum Groups as Objects - There's a desire to change the semantics of the group sub-command for Yum package management.

OpenAttestation - OpenAttestation allows for Trusted Compute Pools in OpenStack and future oVirt releases. The goal of this feature proposal is to simply package OpenAttestation for Fedora.

New Firstboot - Providing a new initial setup application. Compared to the current Firstboot implementation in Fedora / Red Hat Enterprise Linux, this version would better integrate with the new Anaconda installer user-interface and also to the new GNOME Initial Experience process.

MinGW GCC 4.8 - Fedora 19 is already planned to ship with GCC 4.8, which will be released by March to succeed GCC 4.7 in Fedora 17/18. The MinGW GCC 4.8 proposal is about updating the mingw-gcc cross-compiler to GCC 4.8 and rebuilding all MinGW packages against the 4.8-based cross-compiler.

libkkc - This library is a new Japanese Jana Kanji input library and IBus input method engine that uses it as its back-end.

Developers Assistant - A broad proposal to improve the developer experience on Fedora.

GSS Proxy - The gss-proxy has a standardized RPC protocol with client and server implementation that allows proxying of GSS API initiation and authentication, to replace rpc.svcgssd.

Simplify Java/Maven Packaging Using XMvn - The new Maven packaging tools with new macros, an automated install section is provided, and more.

Performance Co-Pilot Update - Integrate the updated version of PCP 4, Performance Co-Pilot.
