Besides approving Mesa 10.1 for Fedora 20, the Fedora Engineering and Steering Committee approved today several features/changes to be found in Fedora 21.

Fedora 21 won't be released until at least October of this year and its landing heavy with features. Each Wednesday after the FESCo meetings we find another batch of newly-approved features and today is no different.

The items approved during today's FESCo meeting (meeting minutes) include:

- Java 8 support.

- Continued work on moving from cron jobs to systemd time units.

- Private devices and private networking for long-running services to make Fedora more secure.

- Many self-contained changes as listed by this FESCo ticket. Changes include adding Amplab-Tachyon as a fault-tolerant distributed file-system, Apache Mesos as a cluster manager for sharing distributed application frameworks, Apache Spark as a fast and general engine for large-scale data processing, Fedora Scala language support, DNSSEC support for FreeIPA, and NFS Ganesha File Server support.
