Besides KDE 4 there are a lot more interesting things planned for Fedora Core 9. Let’s pinpoint a few interesting changes.
- As mentioned, KDE 4
- ext4 support
- Firefox 3
- Encrypted Filesystems, this include install time creation/configuration!
- GCC 4.3
- PreUpgrade, an interesting features that supposedly allows users to easily download all the files needed to upgrade their distro, and then reboot into the installer without burning media.
- PackageKit, I’m a yum cli guy anyway but still…
- Swfdec, to provide support for flash movies. I hope this goes better then my IcedTea experiences.
