There's a few more features being talked about this week for inclusion into Fedora 23.

The latest feature proposals being discussed for Fedora 23 is supporting system firmware updates and including the Frappe Framework.

The system firmware updates comes as no surprise and why I didn't even bother writing about it yesterday when being brought to the mailing lists. This is about sending down UEFI system firmware updates as software package updates on Fedora, for systems supporting UEFI 2.5+ and for motherboard/laptop manufacturers packaging their BIOS updates in a suitable way.

The UEFI system update process has been talked about in numerous articles on Phoronix already with Linux 4.2 going to support the EFI System Resource Table and other measures already in the works by Fedora developers at Red Hat.

The other proposed change for Fedora 23 at this time is packaging the Frappe Framework. Frappe is a web framework based on Python and JavaScript for building out business apps and extensions.
