Fedora Core 7

After a couple months Fedora Core 6 Released, now the Fedora Project Team planned the Fedora Core 7 and they published some of the upcoming changes for this release.

The biggest change will be the merger of "Core" and "Extras" repositories into one huge repository of thousands of packages. Also, Fedora Core 7 will come in three editions: Fedora Desktop (which is a collection of desktop-related packages like GNOME, X, Firefox, etc.), Fedora Server (which is a collection of server-related packages like LAMP stack, maybe JBoss, etc.) and Fedora KDE (which will contain only the K Desktop Environment packages). They are also planning an installable LiveCD release of FC7.

Other new features will include:

• Rock solid wireless networking support;
• Wireless firmware;
• Pungi will be used for tree building;
• Fast user switching;
• RandR 1.2;
• KVM virtualization support;
• Boot and shutdown speed-up;
• New init system;
• rpm and yum enhancements;
• libata will be used for PATA support;
• syslog to be replaced with syslog-ng;
• Improved firewire support;
• Real-time kernel;
• Tickless kernel support;
• Fix wakeups across the distribution;
• Encrypted file systems.

Let's have a look at the Fedora Core 7 preliminary schedule:

• Fedora Core 7 Test1: January 30.
• Fedora Core 7 Test2: February 27.
• Fedora Core 7 Test3: March 26.
• Fedora Core 7 Final Release: April 24.

Some part of me agree with the separation thing, some just resist with that. In my opinion we (Fedora Users) might losing the Powerful Desktop + Server. But also I want to feel how powerful the Fedora Server Edition. So shall we wait ...
