Default Ext4 to be standard for Fedora 11, Btrfs also included



"According to current plans, version 11 of Fedora, which is expected to
arrive in late May, will use Ext4 as its standard file system. That's
what the Fedora Engineering Steering Committee (FESCo) recently decided,
following a heated discussion in an IRC meeting. If however Ext3's
successor encounters big problems with the pre-release versions of
Fedora 11, the developers will dump that plan and revert to Ext3."

After the recent acceptance of Btrfs into the main Linux development
tree, chosen by some well known Linux file system developers as the
"next generation filesystem" for Linux, the Fedora developers didn't
wait and have already included support for Btrfs in Fedora Rawhide. So
now, users of the Fedora development tree, which is updated virtually
daily, can already play around with this still experimental file system,
without having to grapple with compiling the kernel and suitable user
space applications."
