Summary: Fedora 20 is coming and DNF is being introduced as a replacement for Yum
THE developer of Yum died a few months ago and Fedora is poised to replace Yum, introducing instead DNF, which is similar but still experimental . Fedora 20 is already being prepared for release , despite some delays .
Fedora has a short support span, which is my main reason for no longer installing it. Keeping Fedora up to date has been possible using Yum and Red Hat is now trying to improve the update process of RHEL, which Techrights uses in CentOS form. █
Related/contextual items from the news:
Talked about last year prior to the introduction of Fedora 18 was DNF, a new experimental RPM package manager to replace Yum. DNF has been bundled as an experimental option that can live in parallel to Yum, but there hasn’t been too much to report on the project as of late, except today they’re out with a new release.
Half of the submission period for the Supplemental Wallpaper for Fedora 20 is over now.
If you want the newest of the new open-source software, you use Fedora Linux, but if you use Red Hat Enterprise Linux in your business, you had to wait for major releases… until now.
