Fedora 21 won't be released until at least October of this year and its landing heavy with features. Each Wednesday after the FESCo meetings we find another batch of newly-approved features and today is no different.
The items approved during today's FESCo meeting (meeting minutes) include:
- Java 8 support.
- Continued work on moving from cron jobs to systemd time units.
- Private devices and private networking for long-running services to make Fedora more secure.
- Many self-contained changes as listed by this FESCo ticket. Changes include adding Amplab-Tachyon as a fault-tolerant distributed file-system, Apache Mesos as a cluster manager for sharing distributed application frameworks, Apache Spark as a fast and general engine for large-scale data processing, Fedora Scala language support, DNSSEC support for FreeIPA, and NFS Ganesha File Server support.
