Red Hat discloses RHEL roadmap


Quote:
Since the 2012 summit, Red Hat has been working on Red Hat Enterprise Linux versions 6.5 and 7, including updates to the installer, Fedora 19, file systems and more.

We spoke to Denise Dumas, director of software engineering at Red Hat Inc., who outlined some of the upcoming features to be discussed at her Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) Roadmap panel at the 2013 Red Hat Summit.

Many of the changes have come as a response to user-experience testing performed throughout the intervening year, she said.

What changes can we expect as a result of user testing and feedback?

Denise Dumas: We introduced a classic mode [to Fedora 19] which, if you're comfortable with Gnome 2, you're going to find classic mode a no-brainer.

We think that people who are accustomed to Gnome 2 will use classic mode until they're ready to experiment with modern mode. Classic mode is going to be the default for RHEL 7, and we're in the final stages now. We're tweaking it and having people experiment with it. The last thing we want to do is disrupt our customers' workflows.

I think it's been hard for the Gnome guys, because they really, really love modern mode, because that's where their hearts are. But they've done a great job putting together classic mode for us, and I think it's going to keep people working on RHEL 5, 6 and 7 who don't want to retrain their fingers each time they switch operating systems -- I think classic mode's going to be really helpful for them.

For the installer in particular, there were a number of questions around partitioning, and I know they made some changes to the way they handle storage configuration. So that was one of the big things that came out of the [user] sessions.
