There's been some Fedora 20 feature proposals to date, including a controversial change, while on Thursday a list of newly-proposed features was published.

The Fedora Engineering & Steering Committee announced the proposed features for F20 that were accepted this week, via the mailing list:

- Boost 1.54 packages for Fedora 20.

- ARM will finally become a primary architecture for Fedora 20. There's been Fedora ARM images released for a few cycles now, but they haven't been on the same tier as x86/x86_64. With Fedora 20, ARM is now being taken more seriously, but there's still some items to be determined.

- Hadoop will be available on Fedora 20.

- The shared certificate tools will be developed for managing shared system certificates on Fedora 20.

- SSDM will become the default KDE display manager over KDM.

- KDE Plasma Workspaces 4.11 will be available from the Fedora repository and Fedora KDE spin.

- The Yesod Web Framework will be packaged for Fedora 20.

- Support for emulating ARM on x86 hardware through libvirt/virt-manager will be supported.

- User-interface support for creating virtual disk snapshots will be possible through virt-manager. There's disk snapshotting support right now, but no UI elements for making this easy and comparable to other virtualization solutions.
