Fedora Will Begin Upgrading The X.Org Server As A Distribution Update

While Fedora is working to migrate over to Wayland by default, the X.Org Server won't disappear anytime soon for legacy X11 application support and other purposes. With Fedora 21 and going forward, Fedora is likely to be getting in-place X.Org Server updates upon new releases.

Fedora 21 Is Looking & Working Very Well -- Best Fedora Release Yet?

While we're still likely at least months out from the official release of Fedora 21, I've been running it a lot since last month's F21 Alpha release and it's been working out very well. Fedora 21 is easily shaping up to be the best Fedora release yet and the stability/saneness of the development packages is also a charming change compared to some of the more notorious Fedora releases of the past.

Fedora Might End Up Disabling Delta RPMs By Default

Going back to 2009 with Fedora 11 has been delta RPM support to enable support with Yum for these packages that just contain the differences between one installed RPM version to the next version. With Fedora frequently pushing down new packages, delta RPMs have allowed those in bandwidth-constrained environments to more easily download updates since the file sizes of the deltas tend to be significantly smaller than full RPMs. Additionally, it's placed less of a burden on the Fedora infrastructure by having less disk space and bandwidth requirements. However, with DNF it looks like Fedora could revert to going back to full RPMs for distribution of updates.

Btrfs Won't Likely Replace EXT4 As The Default Until Fedora 23

While some having been thinking that Fedora developers might enable the Btrfs file-system by default in Fedora 22, that doesn't appear to be the case. Fedora is unlikely to see Btrfs by default until at least Fedora 23.

Fedora Might Try A New Scheduling Strategy For Its Releases

It's no secret that Fedora has had a challenging time sticking to their release schedules for a long time. With taking care of blocker bugs, Fedora Linux releases tend to frequently slip -- with Fedora 21 it's about two months behind schedule and we're just past the alpha stage. By the time Fedora 21 actually ships, Fedora 20 will have been at least twelve months old. However, a new release scheduling strategy might be tried starting with Fedora 22.
