I was just looking at the Fedora Core 5 goals, and there is some neat stuff in there. I know that it seems to early to talk about life after Breezy (as its feature set is already laid out) but some of this I would like to see in Ubuntu in the future. Next Spring, maybe we can have some stuff like this:
Would be good for dial up people.CD image generating tool
A tool to create CD images from a list of wanted packages would be very nice. The tool would need to generate directory images with all the desired packages, plus their dependencies.
I'm a big fan of open java.Free Java related enhancements
The proposal is to integrate gcjwebplugin (Java applets will work out of the box) , Azureus (Bittorrent client) and RSSOwl (RSS feed aggregator), GCC 4.1 (for better Java funtionality)
(actually I think Breezy has that last one in mind too)Sound-Server
From the whishlist: Better sound server replacement - no arts, or esd, something else. Alan Cox had some ideas about synchronization that he considered essential for a new sound server. Have to dig in the archives to find what he thought of these choices specifically.
Our update manager will probably morph into that one day.GUI Package manager and Updater
GUI package manager (replacing system-config-packages) that avoids the synaptic like long list of packages with a better task oriented system
Some neat stuff. Out of everything, I hope Ubuntu gets the free java and the sound hammered out first. From every indication, the Java will come when its ready:
