DNF, the next-generation replacement to Yum on Red Hat systems, now has support for groups and environments.

Support for package groups/environments is the big feature to DNF 0.5.0 along with functionality related to that like upgrading package groups. A refresh option has also been added to DNF to force the refresh of package meta-data that's not yet been expired. DNF 0.5.0 additionally has many API changes and quite a number of bug fixes.

More information on DNF 0.5.0 can be found via the project release notes and DNF blog post.
