    We in the D community are very happy to see continued support for D2 in Fedora. Please let us know what we can do to help. I announced this thread on reddit: http://www.reddit.com/r/programming/...ort_for_the_d/

    i wonder if ext4 -> btrfs will be handled in the way as gnome2 -> gnome3. i.e. drop ext4 from the distro, and call anyone who does not want to 'upgrade' a luddite, or suggest that they use fat32. that would be fun. :-)

    In fact if I am to believe Fedora's wiki, D2 was included in Fedora 16 already. Also, they are shipping LDC, not DMD.

    What do they mean by D2 support? GDC installed by default? LLVM D compiler installed by default? DMD installed by default? Something entirely different?

    Glad to see official support for D2! (Though I use Arch myself...)

    Josef Basik, Red Hat Btrfs filesystem developer is working on this problem. This is one of the things (along with fsck) that must be in place for Fedora 17. If not, Ext4 will stay as default.

    Note that Btrfs does not yet have a fsck tool that can fix errors. While Btrfs is stable on a stable machine, it is currently possible to corrupt a filesystem irrecoverably if your machine crashes or loses power on disks that don't handle flush requests correctly. This will be fixed when the fsck tool is ready.

    Fedora's feature plans are flexible and if fsck for BTRFS isn't ready in time they will simply stay with ext4 until next release.

    Contingency Plan
    We can just keep ext4 as the default installed file system.

    That's rich.
    Btrfs is licensed under the GPL and open for contribution from anyone.
