"The feature list contains 40 items, including GNOME 3.2 and KDE Plasma
Workspaces 4.7. The developers are planning to switch to using Grub2 for
the boot loader. Having switched to systemd, as an alternative to
sysvinit and upstart, in Fedora 15, the project plans to replace further
sysv init scripts with systemd units in version 16. Furthermore, Fedora
is to offer everything that's required for Xen virtualisation, as
version 3.0 of the Linux kernel, which is now expected to be released on
Friday, will include all the necessary components."
