Btrfs Switch Postponed To Fedora 17

While it originally appeared that Fedora 16 would be the first major distribution (besides possibly counting MeeGo) to switch to Btrfs as the default Linux file-system, that's not going to happen. Fedora 16 will continue defaulting to EXT4 and it will not be until Fedora 17 now that Btrfs will be the Fedora file-system default.

Fedora 16 May Default To Btrfs File-System

At long last, the Btrfs file-system is about to see some wide-scale deployments. While this next-generation Linux file-system has been an installation option in Fedora, Ubuntu, and others going back for several releases now, with Fedora 16 it may become the default file-system.

Fedora 16 Will Be Verne, Not A Beefy Miracle

The Fedora 16 name voting has ended. One of the leading proposals for the Fedora 16 codename was to call it a Beefy Miracle, but that will not happen. The Fedora 15 successor will be called Verne.

Fedora 16 Might Be A Beefy Miracle

Ubuntu 11.10 is codenamed the Oneiric Ocelot, which is perhaps the most unique Ubuntu codename to date, but going up against Mark Shuttleworth's next distribution update will be Fedors 16. What's the codename for that next Red Hat release? It might be called a Beefy Miracle.

LLVMpipe Gallium3D Is Used In Fedora 15

Fedora 15 is gearing up to be another great release from the Red Hat camp with new features like Linux power management improvements, full systemd integration, SPICE support for virt-manager, and consistent network device naming, among many other features. When it comes to open-source graphics drivers, Fedora tends to be on the leading edge of development seeing as Red Hat employs some of the key developers like David Airlie and Jerome Glisse. With Fedora 15, besides shipping with all of the latest kernel / X / Mesa bits, there is one interesting change that's gone largely unnoticed from their feature lists, etc.

Unity Desktop Possibly Coming To Fedora

Adam Williamson has shared that he's looking at packaging Canonical's Unity desktop for Fedora. "Why? Well, a few reasons. Mainly, Unity’s an interesting project. I want to look at it and compare it to GNOME Shell and I think quite a few others do too, so it seems nice to package it so you can run both on Fedora. I don’t really want to maintain an Ubuntu install just to test Unity (can’t do it in a KVM VM as it requires compositing support). Also, though, I think it’ll do a bit to help keep everyone honest: if other projects show interest in providing Unity as an option for people to use, it increases the motivation for Unity's developers to make sure it can be easily built without non-upstreamed changes. Hopefully it also increases the motivation for upstream projects to work with the Unity developers to get their changes merged. It's the same for any project, really – if you have a wide base of users of a project across many distributions, it gives everyone involved a reason to work to make sure it's easy to maintain the project across distributions."

Xen Dom0 Support May Come Back To Fedora

With Xen Domain 0 support finally going into the mainline Linux kernel, those interested in virtualization atop Fedora are now looking at getting the Fedora Xen host support back up to speed for the next release (Fedora 15) or by the time that Fedora 16 rolls out. The Linux kernels since Fedora Core 8 have not been capable of Xen Dom0 hosting, but with the Linux 2.6.37 upstream merge that brings pvops-based support, work is getting underway within the Fedora community to better prepare this KVM alternative.
