If you use preupgrade or yum to upgrade between Fedora releases you will 
never have your filesystem upgraded.

There's a ext4 to btrfs conversion utility if you wish to make the 
switch. (Google btrfs-convert)

As for the change to anaconda (for fresh installs), I do not know a 
timeline for the change.
