" 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.

"So the Fedora Project is going one step beyond Ubuntu version 9.04 (Jaunty Jackalope), which as things currently stand will offer Ext4 as an install time option, though the installer will still use Ext3 as its default file system. The same was true of Fedora 9 and 10: the "ext4" parameter needed to be used when booting up the installation media, in order to enable that file system in the installer. Ext4 was still experimental when Fedora 10 was released."
