Early Fedora 26 Features To Talk About: PHP 7.1, OpenSSL 1.1 & More

While Fedora 25 isn't even being released until mid-November, with now being past the change completion deadline for F25 and Rawhide continuing to move along, early Fedora 26 features are beginning to be talked about.

Some of the latest self-contained proposals for Fedora 26 include PHP 7.1 and BIND 9.11. Given their routine package updates and non-controversial components, they should be approved easily by FESCo. PHP 7.1 will be released before 2016 is through and is one of the updates I'm looking forward to.

Already approved for Fedora 26 has been OpenSSL 1.1, DNF 2.0, and Python 3.6. On the OpenSSL front, the update is coming to Rawhide this week. The release candidate of DNF 2.0 is also out as a big update to this package management component for Fedora.

Fedora 26 is currently scheduled for release in early June and certainly in the next few months will be a lot more news about F26 feature work. What are you hoping to see in Fedora 26? Fedora 25 is still on track with sticking to Wayland by default but surely for F26 there will also be more Wayland and graphics improvements.
